It covers the ugly barren winterscape. It covers that which is worn out and dingy. It makes everything look peaceful, clean and pure. It settles my soul.
I love snow.
It reminds me of how God pours out his mercy and grace… and how his mercy and grace cover me (and my dirty rags) (Isaiah 64:6). Snow makes me think about how God pours out his grace abundantly on me (1 Timothy 1:14). Snow also makes me think about the blood of Christ… how he poured it out to cover our sins and how it makes me ‘whiter than snow’ (Psalm 51:7). Finally, I must say that it is difficult to point to anything that is purer than snow… flawless… perfect… peaceful… without blemish. That is except for the perfection of Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19 & 1 Peter 2:21-22).
I believe that experiencing snow can lead to a very moving time of worship.
If you reside in one of the 50 states where snow is on the ground today… or blessed enough to be in the midst of the Northeast Snow ‘Event’, take time to ponder the snow and how it may bring a clearer understanding of who Jesus Christ is to you. Allow this simple ‘object lesson’ to be one that you store away in your heart so that you can be reminded, every time it snows, of the grace and mercy of God, the power in the blood of Christ and the absolute perfection of our Savior!
