“Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.”
(Psalms 51:10, 12 NLT)

I have owned several used cars in my life. My last used vehicle gave me a lot of problems until I had a mechanic overhaul the engine and then it drove much better. I washed and detailed the exterior and the car looked great. Take an old car to an automotive repair shop and the mechanic can rebuild the vehicle. With a little hard work, expertise and paint soon the old car is restored to look like new. Take a sinner to a church and the Lord Jesus can save the soul. With correct biblical discipleship, teaching and prayer soon the lost soul is restored and made whole.
