Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow
Jesus Paid It All by Kristian Stanfill
Have you ever gotten a stain on a nice light shirt? When that happens, you usually try to get rid of the mark with stain remover of some kind. Usually it makes it barely noticeable, but if you look very closely, there is still residue from that stain.
Our sins have covered our clothes with crimson stain. Our human abilities do not allow us to completely get rid of it. Jesus is the only one who can make our clothes as white as snow. Isaiah prophesied, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool” (Isaiah 1:18)
Jesus doesn’t leave any residue on us. He is the sacrificial lamb that came down to die for us. His sacrifice made us new and good in the eyes of God. Jesus washes us with his blessings and we need His washing to enter Heaven as John 13:8 says, “’No,’ said Peter, ‘you shall never wash my feet.’ Jesus answered, ‘Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.’” It is remarkable that our Savior is so humble to wash our feet. With Jesus we are made new.
