Show Notes

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 like wool.”  When Isaiah writes about reasoning together, this is a call to consider the rationality of righteousness. The people were not to reason with the Lord by defending their behavior and arguing their innocence - rather, they were to admit that “the Lord is righteous in all his ways, And holy in all his works.” (Psalm 145:17) They were to admit that they were “all like an unclean thing, and all [their] righteousnesses… like filthy rags.” (Isaiah 64:6) The wages of sin is death. But the gift of God is eternal life. (Romans 6:23) It is rational to reject sin in favor of the life that is available to us only through a saving relationship with Christ.
