As winter approaches, we see signs of it in the red and yellow leaves covering more of the ground than the trees. We see in in the people out and about bundled up for the season.
What we haven’t yet seen this year is. . . the snowman.
In the movies Frozen and Frosty, we see Olaf and Frosty “dying” and then coming back to life.
That also describes the follower of Jesus Christ. When the blood of Jesus is applied to his heart, what was stained dark with sin becomes white as snow (Revelation 7:14). He dies to himself and lives unto God (Galatians 2:20).
What about the abominable snowman?
God also tells us that we have been made the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
We have our white clothes, We are the righteousness of God, How is it then that we from time to time turn into the abominable snowman?
In Proverbs 17:15 God says that he who condemns the righteous is an abomination to the Lord (just as much as he who justifies the wicked).
What do you speak?
About your brother?
Are you speaking condemnation? Romans 8:1 tells us there is no condemnation to those who belong to Christ Jesus.
So, Snowman, beloved of God, put off the abominable and walk in the righteousness you possess in this season of snow, the season when we first focus on all the reasons we are thankful and then celebrate the birth of our soon-coming King!
