Time for a trade-in?
Posted by Bob on January 31, 2012
“Religion” tries to fix up the old you, constantly tinkering with you here and there, but never really fixing the problems. Kind of like taking your beat up car in for repairs over and over again. It may seem to help a little, but you still drive away the same old clunker.
When you finally realize that your old life is beyond repair and religion is costing you way too much – it’s time for a trade-in. You need something new. Instead of religion, you need Jesus. He doesn’t “repair” the old you, He accepts the trade-in of your old broken life and exchanges it for a BRAND NEW life in Him. Just think, a brand new shiny life in Christ, no more religious tinkering or religious payments – because Jesus already paid it all. Now that’s good news! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
