Reasoning in Faith
“Come now, let us settle the matter, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.“ Isaiah 1:18 (NIV)
Forgiveness for sins is not a cheap exchange but a reasoning between our heart and head with faith in God’s Word. Forgiveness is an exchange of conversation, toil, and yielding of guilt through the prayer of faith. Biblical Christianity is not mindless. The Son of God gave up the glory of Heaven for the cruel cross of Calvary in exchange for our forgiven life.
Our sins may be the darkest of humanity, the deepest in depravity, or the most shameful of haunting guilt, but God’s promise is that if we go and settle it with Him in faith those stains will be washed away. By this, and in the Lord’s eyes, we’ll stand in robes of cleanliness.
Let’s pray today that we may turn our heart and mind toward the Lord trusting in His promise through faith.
