The rust protection warranty on my car had a test drive today. The insurance company took a look and decided to fix the rusty bits on my car. However, it depended on the manufacturer. They could have said no.
A guarantee is something that assures a specific outcome. It’s a promise to be responsible for another, a formal promise by one person to take responsibility for the debts or obligations of another person if that person fails to meet them.
Some of us treat God like a warranty. We think he may or may not stand by his word. But God gives a guarantee! He guarantees that with the death of his son, Jesus, on the cross, we have a guarantee of forgiveness for sins and eternal life when our earthly one ends!
This is how you can take advantage of that guarantee.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1John 1:9, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, it’s been a while coming, but here we are finally, asking your forgiveness for our sin and taking advantage of your guarantee of eternal life. Thanks. Amen
