A PERSONAL INVITATION FROM GOD

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18 (NKJV)

Throughout time, God has repeatedly appealed to us to step away from our sins and follow His way of righteousness. Sin alters life by taking what God calls pure and distorting it. An iodine stain on white linen ruins the fabric’s design and fiber, and nothing can remove its staining power. Sin has the same effect on your life—it stains deeply. Yet God in His mercy has provided a way for its removal through the atoning death of Jesus Christ. Christ is your personal invitation from God to be washed clean from sin’s staining power.

Once you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, God clothes you in the righteousness of His Son. Your sins are forgiven, and you are made white as snow. His forgiveness means freedom from sin, freedom from guilt, and peace that passes all understanding. It means living forever in the vital union of fellowship with Christ.
