Mike's Minute

By Mike Kelley

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.

1 Corinthians 5:17

Dave Brannon wrote the following thoughts in the excellent men's devotional book, Stand Strong:

"The beat-up old car sits on the used car lot, dirty and forsaken. Years of abuse and hard living have taken their toll. A man walks onto the lot and is attracted to this rust bucket. He plunks down the cash and the salesperson hands over the keys, emphasizing to the buyer that he is selling the car 'as is.' The new owner just smiles. He knows his cars, and he's about to restore this castoff to its former beauty.

Across town, a troubled man sits in forlorn sadness, contemplating where he went wrong. Years of abuse and hard living have taken their toll. He's been rejected so many times that he feels of little value. After all that misery and pain, he's sure he will be left on life's junk heap forever.

Then someone tells him about Jesus. Someone mentions that Jesus specializes in castoffs and that He is waiting to transform anyone who trusts him. Someone tells him that Jesus will take him 'as is.' He believes. He trusts. He obeys. And Jesus begins to restore another lost person to the abundant life He has promised."

Will you be on the lookout for someone who feels like a "castoff?" Will you tell them about the love of Jesus? Will you tell them that Jesus has already paid the price to purchase them? Will you tell them that Jesus will take them "as is" ... but won't leave them that way? Will you tell them that Jesus specializes in restoration projects?
