Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 8th – White As Snow

(You’re Clean And Flawless In Christ Jesus)

TO THE BIBLE: Isaiah 1:18 NASB
““Come now, and let us debate your case,” says the Lord, “though your sins are as scarlet, they shall become as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.”

The Lord Jesus was divine and without sin; yet, He became the sin-sacrifice who was offered up for the sin of the world. He took our place of sin on the Cross so that we might take His place of righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21).

As a result of what Jesus did, we’re declared holy and without blame before the Father. We can boldly stand in the presence of God without guilt, inferiority, or condemnation.

The truth is this: God holds nothing against you. To Him, you’re as perfect as Jesus is because your righteousness is the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Picture it this way: An amazing prince beckoned on you to attend his banquet. Whereas you were wearing rags and wouldn’t venture near him or his guests because of your filthy looks, with a warm smile, he gestured for you to come in and flung open the banquet door.

Noticing your reluctance, he entreated further that you come in so he could introduce you to the others in the hall. But with a look of dejection, you refused the invitation.

Finally, the prince said, “I know how you feel; I’ll not make you ashamed. Can you trust me?”
Then, you trusted his word and went in. However, you still couldn’t imagine yourself mingling with such clean and flawless people.

Knowing your thoughts, the prince said, “Now that you’ve believed, look at yourself again!” Then you did and suddenly, you were as regal and immaculate as the prince and everyone else in the room! This is akin to your righteousness in Christ Jesus.

The Bible says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). Glory to God!

No wonder He says in 1 Corinthians 6:11 that you’re washed, sanctified, and justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Now He’s made you His partner in bringing others into this amazing life of righteousness, to experience the same peace and glory you have in Him. Hallelujah! Don’t keep it to yourself.
