RECALL NOTICE

In 2010, auto manufacturers recalled a staggering 20 million cars in the US for various defects. The thought of such  a large number of  defective cars on the road is startling enough. But what is  more disturbing is  the  apathy of  some owners.  In one  instance, the executive director  of  the Center  for  Auto  Safety warned owners,  “It’s  a  free repair. Get it done.  It  may  save  your life.” Yet, despite the  risk to  their own  lives,  30 percent never responded.

Likewise, many ignore God’s “recall notice” to the entire human race. Unlike a defect found in automobiles, the moral defect of the human race is not the Maker’s fault. He made everything “very good” (Gen. 1:31), but people’s sin ruined it. God’s offer to us is “repent . . . that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19).

God offers not just a free repair of the human heart but a replacement of it (Ezek. 36:26; 2 Cor. 5:17). Though the offer costs us nothing (Eph. 2:8-9), it cost God His life.  He bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24).

Don’t ignore the Lord’s call. The free and permanent remedy offered by God for your spiritual defect will save your life!

The heart of man is stained by sin,
From Adam’s fall this has been true;
Yet God in Christ can make a change—
Through faith in Him we are made new. —Fitzhugh

For a new start, ask God for a new heart.
