According to Matthew 21:25 Jesus asked the chief priests, “Where did John’s baptism come from? From heaven or from men?” Without a doubt the baptism is sanctioned from heaven and we are mere men allowed to be servents to the Most High. Glory! We had a baptism at my home last night! Would you agree that being servant of the Lord holds untold riches? How can we resist Him? To partake of the grace of God is divine but then to experience the grace more and more leaves me speechless at times. As the evening began there was a beautiful light snow fall. A symbolic reminder to us that the Lord indeed washes us as white as snow; they will be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18) How about a reminder today that only Jesus has the answer for you. Only the Perfect sacrifice can wash you as white as snow. Will you join me in a shout of Hallelujah! for the grace poured out over your sweet head? Amen!!
Let’s take a look at who we match when we are washed white as snow and wool. “As I kept watching, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took His seat. His clothing was white like snow and the hair of His head like whitest wool.” “His appearance was like lightning, and his robe was as white as snow.” “His head and hair were white like wool – white as snow…” (Daniel 7:9, Matthew 28:3, Revelation 1:14)
The goal of sanctification is that we are conformed to the image of Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:17 tells us with unveiled faces, we are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory! Does it speak to your heart that as we are washed white as snow that white is the color used to describe aspects of Jesus or the garmet He wears? Glory and Grace!! It is poured out in abundance! Stand with your face looking toward the heavens and be washed. I bet you look stunning in white!
Keep remembering your verses!
In His grace,
