The more my journey continues, the more my belief in Christ deepens. Today in prayer, I was praying for someone when the scripture (Isaiah 1:18) came about and I walked away from prayer with yet another nugget or should I say nuggets….one, we shouldn’t judge others because of what they have done REGARDLESS of how bad, disgusting, or morally degrading it is ESPECIALLY when now, they are trying to get it together which brings me to my next point that two, this thing with Christ is fair game, all are welcomed, forgiven, and loved. Someone who finds Christ today is entitled to what God has just like someone whose been saved for years. There’s nothing you could’ve ever done in the past that would revoke the privilege of being redeemed by Jesus Christ. Isaiah 1:18 describes sin to be as scarlet and of crimson. Both are shades of red but one is deeper than the other, one stains worse than the other but regardless, the scripture states that the red can be made as white as wool, and white as snow. Regardless of where your sin lies in the “spectrum of reds” it can be made white.. isn’t that just amazing? I don’t know about y’all but I don’t have too many people who remain THAT loving and forgiving despite of the worst things I have said or done. To me it’s good to know that he is able to clean any and EVERYTHING about me. And you wanna know what makes his forgiveness infallibly kind? while everyone else is recalling everything you have done once Jesus forgives you, he doesn’t even know what everyone’s talking about !! lol crazy right? he literally forgives and forgets. This is only one of the many reasons why I am christian, yeah I was raised as such BUUUUT.. the older I am getting, the more I am seeing Jesus for myself by myself. I see why prayer is important, it’s not just about telling him what’s wrong or asking him for a favor but you get something out of it, you get up different than you were when you first kneeled down whether you feel stronger, relieved, or even enlightened. It’s personal, something no one can ever take away.
Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.Isaiah 1:18 (KJV)
