One never knows what “treasures” they may find at a garage sale, estate sale, or auction. I like to pick up chairs that need some tender loving care. I visualize the possibility of revitalizing them and giving them new life. Refinishing the wood and replacing the seat is a hobby I enjoy. It’s interesting to see the before and after pictures of chairs that otherwise may have been discarded–even burned–if I had not rescued them.
These chairs remind me of our lives. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Our natural lives are like the old chairs which are ready to be discarded. But God in His mercy sent His only son, Jesus, to die for our sins. He became our rescuer. John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
By believing what God did and trusting Him alone for our salvation, we become like a chair that receives new life and becomes useful again. Romans 10:9-10 simply tells us, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
If we do not accept the fact that Jesus died for our sins, and do not trust in Him for eternal life, we are destined for the discard pile—like the old chairs if they had not been rescued.
The next time you see a dilapidated chair, be reminded of your life without Christ. You can be rescued and saved from the burn pile by trusting in Jesus. He will give you a new life of usefulness for Him!
