Snow is used as a standardÂ of whiteness and purity.Â Many years ago a photographerÂ became interested inÂ photographing snowflakes.Â After taking hundreds of picturesÂ of different flakes, heÂ concluded that no two wereÂ exactly alike. Sadly, whenÂ these beautiful flakes comeÂ in contact with earth theyÂ soon become soiled.
Like snowflakes, no twoÂ humans are identical either.Â Even their fingerprints andÂ DNA are unique. Man alsoÂ becomes contaminatedÂ by the world. This is whatÂ God calls sin. A poet onceÂ described a manâ€™s life â€œas aÂ snowflake on the river. AÂ moment there, then goneÂ forever.â€ The flake goes backÂ to the element from which itÂ came. â€œMan dieth and wastethÂ awayâ€¦and where is he?â€ (JobÂ 14:10).
When God created manÂ in the Garden of Eden, He formedÂ him â€œof the dust of the ground, and ,breathed into his nostrils the breath ,of life: and man became a living soulâ€Â (Genesis 2:7). When we die, ourÂ bodies return to dust, but unlike theÂ snowflake, we have a soul that willÂ live on forever, either in Heaven orÂ in Hell. If you accept the Lord JesusÂ Christ as your Saviour, you can beÂ sure your soul will be in HeavenÂ for â€œthe blood of Jesus Christ His SonÂ cleanseth us from all sinâ€ (1 John 1:7).
In Isaiah 1:18, God says, â€œComeÂ now, and let us reason together, saithÂ the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet,Â they shall be white as snow.â€
