When you read this verse, just remember this; “God’s reasoning with you, is a lot different from you reasoning with yourself!”:
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. (Isa 1:18)
I think this actually rather goes to together with my last post “bloody hands”.
Here’s that verse, put in you/me terms:
Lets see, you’re a bloody sinner, um… You are (*currently*) worthless, wretched, and have no purpose to your life!… To put it frankly, you’re a bloody mess!
But, you know something?… My son died so that you could “clean up”. He became a bloody mess, for you… So that you can become my son (sheep)!
That’s what I think this verse is saying.
There, believe it or not, is a reason Jesus died for you and for me… It was so that you and I could become God’s children! For heaven’s sake (if you’ll pardon the pun), that’s God’s own reasoning!
You are loved!
