When we think of Christmas we often think of colors like red, green, white, blue, and gold; each color holds a special meaning. Green reminds us of living things like plants and trees and the eternal life that we have in Christ. While red reminds us of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross, white reminds us of the pureness of Jesus. Gold was one of the gifts given to Jesus by the wise men, and blue reminds us of the sky and heaven.
Isaiah 1:18 says, “’Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”
Colors are used throughout the Bible to express God’s love and forgiveness.
