This is what Trevor was doing to pass the time as I was making dinner tonight. What a picture it painted to me of the forgiveness we celebrate--the truth that we once were defiled and dirtied by our sin, but were made clean by Christ's redemptive work on the cross and His resurrection.
We try to un-simplify it, don't we? Doesn't it seem like there should be more to it than that? But the moment someone crosses from self-righteousness to Christ's righteousness, something happens in an instant. Much like the words of my little boy: "Dirty......clean!"
Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow;
Though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
