Scarlet Grace Allan

On July 27 at 19:41 Scarlet Grace Allan was born. Her name is a reminder of how the scarlet blood of Christ redeems us from our scarlet sins and brings us into the riches of God's grace.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace (Eph. 1:7).
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 like crimson, they shall become as wool (Is. 1:18).
Our desire for Scarlet is not that she will be well educated, popular, thoughtful, or athletic, but that she will know the riches of His Grace; living not for herself, but for the glory of God. We know that we cannot force it on her, but that we will need to be a light revealing the good news that she can know God and Jesus Christ. It is scary to think our greatest desire for her is outside of our control.
