Return to Manufacturer for Warranty

Published April 16, 2013

Have you had one of those frustrating times in life when a product failed and you tried to exchange it, have it fixed, or receive a refund? You diligently put it back in its original box or packaging and had all the required receipts in hand, only to be told, “You must return it to the original manufacturer, only they will honor the warranty.” Then you must wait for weeks or months for their response. It can be exceptionally frustrating when the product is advertised and sold as having a life time warranty. What does that mean exactly, anyway? Who determines the life time? Is it some arbitrary number picked for the life of the product, or is some arbitrary number picked for the number of years you live, and then die, before you give up on receiving any satisfaction from the manufacturer? I think it is the latter!

Is it not wonderful then, to know, there is a manufacturer who will always stand by his product and will always honor the warranty he placed on the product?

That manufacturer is God and we are his product; for in the beginning God said “let us make man in our image, in our likeness….” So God made man in his own image, the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God saw all he had made and said it is very good. (Gen. 1: 26-27, 31)

What makes God’s warranty so unique is that no matter how we abuse or break the product, (our body, soul, and spirit) he has guaranteed full repair. And what is even more astounding, the cost is free! There is no additional charge for an extended warranty and it is guaranteed for eternity!

You may ask how do we abuse and break his product. Through the practice and devastation of sin we weaken and sicken our bodies. We destroy our souls by listening to and falling prey to the temptation and deceptions of the evil one. We weaken our spirits by ignoring Gods perfect word. The list of what we do individually to abuse and break his product could go on and on.

As I said, His warranty is astonishing! We are made ‘good’ again, whole and well, perfect in all ways, and it cost us nothing!

You say, “Come on now, it has to cost something!” It did cost something. It cost God his son’s life.  You see, God loves us so much he gave  his son, Jesus Christ, as payment, on the cross of Calvary. (John 3:16) Jesus has redeemed us; he has paid the price with his blood, for God’s warranty on our lives! (Eph. 1:7) And he did this so all who call upon the name of Jesus will be saved, their warranty will be honored, and they too will receive their perfect, incorruptible, glorified body at the resurrection. And it is an eternal warranty! John 10:28 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

Are you saved and your eternal warranty paid for by the precious blood of Jesus? If so, then every day, thank God for it!

If you are not yet sure you can say my warranty is redeemed and paid for, call on the name of Jesus. Acknowledge you are a sinner and your sin, is breaking the product God so wonderfully made. Believe that Jesus Christ is God and Savior and he freely shed his blood and gave His life as punishment for those sins. Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and your need for Him in your life. Do this with a sincere and repentant heart and you too will receive your warranty of eternal life!

In thanks, praising God for my eternal warranty!
