Colored filters.

How incredible that the God of the universe would condescend to speak with human beings. But even more incredible is that the Judge of the Universe would reason with guilty criminals (see also 43:6). Our sins stand out to a holy God like a crimson, blood-soaked rag, but through the mercy of the cross we can become pure as the driven snow (see Psa. 51:7).

“I occasionally use colored filters over my lenses when I photograph in black and white. For instance, a light yellow filter darkens the sky, while brightening the clouds. A red filter enhances the white still more. That particular day, I experimented with viewing a red dot on white paper through a red filter. To my amazement, the dot, when seen through the red filter, appeared white. At that moment I realized the overwhelming truth of God’s forgiveness. Our sin, depicted as deep red by Isaiah, becomes white as snow and wool when seen through the red cross of Golgotha. This is the great transformation of forgiveness…God in Christ has cleansed you of every stain of sin.” Charles Stanley

Isaiah 1:18“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.
