Isaiah 1:18
18"Come now, let us argue this out," says the LORD. "No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you as white as wool.

Through Isaiah, the Lord is presenting His case against Israel. In verse 10 God has just told the leaders that the people have acted like those of Sodom and Gomorrah. Anyone familiar with those cities would know their ultimate fate and should be fearful for their own destiny. Yet the Lord calls out to them and says they can argue out their problems with him. He is willing to listen and struggle with them in coming to a resolution. And He says if they will argue it out with Him they can become clean and white even though they are stained with sin.

If you have ever had a nice white shirt and dropped tomato sauce, blueberries, or mustard on the shirt and then tried to wash them out later you know how difficult it is. Once they have set in on the shirt for a while the stain just locks in. Imagine if you did that time after time after time. Eventually the shirt would be nothing but one big stain. God was looking at His people and saying your sins have stained you so much all I see is one red crimson stain. Sin stains a person’s life and blots their reputation. Each sin just taints a person’s life discoloring the life they could have had. God is calling us to a holy life, a life possible though Jesus Christ. Have you put your faith in Jesus to wash away your sins and make them white as snow? Maybe there are some current sins in your life Jesus would be willing to help remove? Pray for the faith in Jesus Christ to remove the sins in your life. Pray that as new sins creep in He will remove each one far away and keep you white as the fallen snow. Thank God for willingness to reach out and even argue your sins with you. Know that you have a God that loves you deeply.
