Snow is used as a standard of whiteness and purity. Many years ago a photographer became interested in photographing snowflakes. After taking hundreds of pictures of different flakes, he concluded that no two were exactly alike. Sadly, when these beautiful flakes come in contact with earth they soon become soiled.
Like snowflakes, no two humans are identical either. Even their fingerprints and DNA are unique. Man also becomes contaminated by the world. This is what God calls sin. A poet once described a man’s life “as a snowflake on the river. A moment there, then gone forever.” The flake goes back to the element from which it came. “Man dieth and wasteth away… and where is he?” (Job 14:10).
When God created man in the Garden of Eden, He formed him “of the dust of the ground, and, breathed into his nostrils the breath, of life: and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). When we die, our bodies return to dust, but unlike the snowflake, we have a soul that will live on forever, either in Heaven or in Hell. If you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you can be sure your soul will be in Heaven for “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
In Isaiah 1:18, God says, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.”
