I read a short but very wonderful illustration of God’s Loving Restoration this morning. The author likened each sinner to an “old discarded car that appears worthless except for the one who views it through eyes of love.” However through God’s love we’re as good as new.
Yes, we are all like beaten-up old cars that have practically no value, but God because of his great love for us was willing to pay a high price just to get us to be what we are really meant to be–spiritually and morally upright and glorious. He so willingly sacrificed his only begotten Son just to give us all undeserving and rebellious sons and daughters a chance to be new again.
Revelation 21:5 says, “Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
Yes, God will give you a new life, a new hope and a new heart; but only if you will let him. Will you? Through God’s love we’re as good as new, and that is something that makes me happy.
