Today is a day we celebrate love. There are relationships that are vital to us that we set apart and do special things for. It is quit the thing to celebrate. Holiness is all about being set apart for something special. With God it is the bridge that must be overcome for a relationship to exist. But, no one is perfect. So what do we do?
What God did
As we read Psalm 51:7 or Isaiah 1:18 we see the beautiful phrase "water than snow." Snow becomes a picture of purity. This stands out during a fresh snow fall when everything looks completely magical. What's interesting in Isaiah is the contrast from red with the purity of white. One of the amazing things God did for his people was wash away their sin.
This picture of God washing away sin plays out in a similar fashion to a romantic comedy. One party acts silly and realizes their stupid mistakes and reconciles with the person they love. The person put the issues to bed because they want to be with the one they love. God overcomes the hangs up to have a relationship with us. We merely need to come to our senses and realize the incredible gift we have in him.
The finality and security in what God did for us is incredible. It is why we worship and desire to worship. God does huge things for us because he wants to be with us. And when we mess up? He makes us whiter than snow.
