The blood of Jesus transforms our winter clothes of sin.

This field is full of weeds and wild growth—a rather useless piece of land. During much of the winter it is even worse—brown and dry and rather ugly. But on this day it is amazingly impressive. The white coating of frost makes even the brownest, useless and most reviled objects beautiful.
The clothes of our sinful nature, like a dry winter, are dark and ugly. Happily, when Jesus died for us our sin-stained robes and disheveled lives changed. Forgiveness and hope entered the world. We approach the throne of grace and cry out to God,
“Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7 New Living Translation
The blood of the Lamb dressed in white washes over us and bleaches our filthy garments, making them the cleanest white imaginable.
“They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.”
Revelation 3:4-5 New Living Translation
Oh the joy of being clothed in white with Jesus for all eternity!
