White As Snow

White As Snow Sermon Illustration

Charles Spurgeon described his experience of forgiveness this way: “My life was full of sorrow and wretchedness, believing that I was lost. But, oh, the blessed gospel of the God of grace came to me, and with it a sovereign word, ‘Deliver him!’ And I who was but a minute before as wretched as a soul could be, could have danced for the very merriment of heart. And as the snow fell on my road home from the little house of prayer, I thought every snowflake talked with me and told of the pardon I had found, for I was white as the driven snow through the grace of God” (Charles Haddon Spurgeon, “Footsteps of Mercy,” Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, vol. 15, accessed December 31, 2019).
