When we buy goods/services they often come with a guarantee which promises that if the purchase fails or breaks within that guarantee period, it will be fixed or replaced free of charge. We now also seems to be getting more and more goods/services which offer extended guarantees on them so that even once the manufacturer’s guarantee has expired, for a monthly/annual cost, the supplier promises to fix/replace the goods, although this time there’s often an excess charge.
So a manufacturer’s guarantee is usually limited to a reasonable small amount of time, and an extended warranty while it does provide a guarantee of fixing or replacing faults, there is a charge associated with it.
Isn’t it great though that our very own manufacturer, God, guarantees to look after us not just for a few years, but forever, and not for a price, because Jesus paid the extended warranty fee for us when he died at Calvary.
Who else would give you a lifetime guarantee for no charge, except God?
