We are under about an eight inch blanket of snow this morning. Everything looks pure white and clean. Before the snow the ground was brown and scrubby, the trees barren, and everything in mid-winter roughness. But now, all is clean and pure white. This is always a good picture of what Christ has done for us. Luke 15 tells the story of the Prodigal Son who rebelled from his father, but finally returned home in repentance. The father received the son, and the first instruction to his servants, was to “Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him.”(vs.22) The father, in the greatest love, received the son back, and immediately surrounded him with a clean robe, covering all of the stench of the pig pen he had been in. Jesus Christ has covered us in the pure white robe of His righteousness. When you look at the blanket of snow, let it remind you of the great love of our Lord who has covered all of our sins.
