White as snow, white as snow
Though my sins were as scarlet
Lord, I know, Lord, I know
That I'm clean and forgiven
Through the power of Your blood
Through the wonder of Your love
Through faith in You
I know that I can be
White as snow

These roses are from our garden.
Every time I walk into our front yard, dozens of beautiful flowers remind me of God's creation and design.
The past few days I have been particularly drawn to the contrast between the scarlet red roses and the bright, white roses, but it wasn't until yesterday that the Lord made me understand why.
The colors represent the contrast between sin and righteousness. 

There is only one way to be freed from the guilt and condemnation of sin and made righteous before a holy God.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool. 
Isaiah 1:18

But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us
. Romans 5:8

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. I John 1:7

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9

My prayer is that we as believers will boldly proclaim with John the Baptist, not only this Easter weekend but every day, so that others may know come to know Jesus as their personal Savior ...
"BEHOLD! The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!"
