Lord, let me stand and admire the beauty of Your perfection. You have offered me so much and I have given You so little. Through my copious tears I am aware of my imperfection. Through my sighs of discontent my shortcomings are made known. Through my hasty judgments and harsh words, my iniquity is revealed. What a shameful cloak I would wear if I was not given new garments in Christ. How can I thank You for the robe of righteousness that conceals my shame? How can I express gratitude worthy of the purity extended to me upon the cross? Let my soul perpetually delight in this new appearance. My black heart has been washed white. My scarlet sins have been carefully removed. Though I scarce comprehend the beauty of the magnificence extended to me through this inheritance in Christ Jesus, let my heart leap to joyous life because it is no longer exposed for what it was, but is made into what my Creator intended it to be. In the sweetest admiration of my imperfect being, I praise You God, my Savior and King. Under the Word of Isaiah 1:18 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
Isaiah 1:18, NIV
