Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. – Isaiah 1:18
Our theme scripture is undoubtedly one of the most touching statements ever recorded in the Bible. God pleads with His children to allow Him cleanse them of their sins and iniquities. You see, that you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you wouldn’t make any mistake. You could make mistakes, but what you need to know is that the blood of Jesus is available to wash you from every wrong. It’s available to purify your heart. This is the Gospel!
You don’t have to remain in your sin. There’s the cleansing blood from Calvary. It’s still working and you can be purified. “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1). Believe in Jesus today! He was offered up for your offenses and raised for your justification. He takes responsibility for all your mistakes, all your sins, everything you’ve ever done wrong and will ever do wrong; He takes responsibility for them all. So you can keep running the faith race without getting weighed down by the load and guilt of sin.
If you’ve committed sin and you know it, obtain forgives. There’s a shelf on the way as you’re running the faith-race; pick up your forgiveness! Don’t stop and start digging your sins; don’t let anything to stop you from living the good life God prearranged for you to live. If people want to dig your sins, let them but you keep on going and win the race. If you’ve been crying because you did something wrong, God says He has seen your tears; He accepted your crying. So, stop blaming yourself because that will only weaken your faith because it’s a proof that you actually don’t trust the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus enough.
His blood can purge your conscience – the voice of your human spirit – from dead works and set you aright to serve the living God (Hebrews 9:13-14). What you need is to believe and trust in that blood. Believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. That’s the Gospel. Forgiveness of sin for the believer is just as powerful as remission of sin for the sinner. Your sin will not determine what you become, for sin has been judged in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:14; Romans 8:1-3); but your faith will (Hebrews 11:6; James 1:6-7).

Father, I thank you because of the blood of Jesus guarantees my salvation and total deliverance from sin. I rejoice because I know I serve a God who loves me and sent His precious Son to die for me on account of my sins, thereby absolving me of every guilt and judgment of sin both now and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
