Completely New in God’s Eyes

“Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. ‘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

Today we will focus on a passage from Isaiah Chapter One. This is one of literally hundreds of passages that proclaim you’re completely new in God’s eyes. Through His prophet, Isaiah, God calls us to do what is right and that we see ourselves as God sees us, which is pure as snow. Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight. Stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless. Plead the case of the widow. The Lord says, “Come now, let us settle the matter.”

When the Bible talks about white as snow, it’s not talking about some virtue of the color white, and it’s not referencing any race-related issues. It’s about the experience you have when you see snow falling, and laying fresh and powdery before you. Maybe you’ve enjoyed experiencing a newly fallen snow along a beautiful mountain range. White snow means that it’s flawless, clean, and pure. It means you can scoop up a hand of it and eat it. 

Friend, there is something about snow, isn’t there? This is the image that God has for us: totally fresh, brand new, like a baby — He’s creating new life inside of you. You’re forgiven and you’re loved. You can rest in the truth that you are completely new in God’s eyes!


Father, help me to embrace your image of me. Thank you for creating new life inside of me.


How do you defend the oppressed? Can you think of opportunities to seek justice?

  1. I tune in to Hour of Power and I want to thank you. I’m thanking you for my sons as well. They see and hear your teaching, prayers and inspirations in our home as I watch and rewatch your sermons. Do Your Best Forget The Rest!!!! Dust your shoulders off!! Stop kicking yourself around!!! I take notes. God Bless you and your family. I am recently widowed and I’m raising two sons. Its been a little over a year since my husband passed away. It’s been tough with me kicking myself around. The power of the Holy Spirit overrides my constant battlefield in my mind. I am hopeful every day that something good will happen and it always does. My sons have really good grades and they are very kind and sweet. We have a beautiful home and a dog. We are blessed. Please keep us in your prayers. I’m about to watch this mornings sermon. Sincerely The Cayer Family
