Psalm 51:7 (NIV)
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
When it snows, everything looks clean, beautiful, and bright. All of the imperfections of the earth are covered with a white blanket, and everything appears new and reborn.
When you accept Jesus into your heart and life, you are, in essence, reborn. He removes your sins from you as far as the east is from the west. And there is more! The Christian has the promises of ongoing forgiveness. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9 NIV)
