DAILY READINGS: Deut. 14:22-15:23; Song 5:2-6:9; Luke 10:25-42

“Come now, and 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 be as wool…” Isaiah 1:18, NKJV

This verse names four colours, three of which (scarlet, red and crimson) describe our sin-stained condition in God’s sight. The good news, however, is that cleansing is available through the sin-atoning death of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you wish to be “as white as snow,” put your undivided trust in Him! —George Hall

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus! —Robert Lowry

DAILY READINGS: Deut. 14:22-15:23; Song of Sol. 5:2-6:9; Luke 10:25-42

He hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30

The darkness was lifting. Jesus had poured out his soul unto death, and sin’s price had been paid. The last drop of crimson blood was shed. The Victor’s shout carried across the Kidron, and echoed off the massive city wall, “It is finished.” He, thank God, had borne the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors, including you and me. —Arnot P. McIntee

There is a green hill far away, with-out a city wall,
Where God’s dear Son was crucified, who died to save us all. —Cecil Frances Alexander
