The color of sin

RE Verse reading–Isaiah1:1-20 (day two) “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”  (vs 18)  What color is sin?  We usually think of it as black.  God (speaking through Isaiah) describes it as red.  From eternity, God has known that sin would require the death of His Son.  Not something we easily understand–how an infinite God can see all options and outcomes before they happen.  Even so, the Bible calls Jesus “the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world”.  The sins of men look red to God.   He never looks our rebellion without remembering the cost that would be required to redeem us.  Amazing love!  Even as He sees our sin, He is remembering the way that we may be saved.  This is the way for sinners to become white again.  “The blood of Jesus His son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7)
