I once had a recall notice for my automobile. There had been something discovered faulty and they did a massive recall by the dealers to replace a part. It wasn’t a major part or an expensive part, but they must have thought it was unsafe or they wouldn’t have recalled all those cars. The best brains in Detroit can design the perfect machine, but until someone runs it for a few hundred miles no one knows for sure.
Suppose God put this warning on the heart and soul of every person: “Because of a fatal attraction to sin and willful misuse, this item is defective. Failure to correct this problem will result in certain spiritual death.”
That is, in effect, what Jesus was saying when He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). We need to turn ourselves in for the recall. Only Jesus can make us right again.
