The Filter System

"Dad, does Uncle Jim know somebody named Alice who's going to die?" asked Tim. Dad looked puzzled. "When you and Mom were talking about Uncle Jim, I thought I heard you say die and Alice's . . . or something like that. I didn't quite get it. Uncle Jim isn't going to die, is he? I know he hasn't been very well for a long time already."

"You heard us mention dialysis," said Dad. "That's all one word- dialysis. We were talking about a medical procedure Uncle Jim needs. Each organ or part of our body has a job to do, you know. All of us have two kidneys that act as filters to remove poisons and impurities from our blood. But Uncle Jim's kidneys quit working."

"They did?" Tim looked worried. "But if they're not working, he will die, won't he?"

"Without treatment, he will," replied Dad. "He really needs a kidney transplant, but until that happens, he has to be connected to a dialysis machine every so often. It takes over the filtering work for the kidneys and removes poisons from the blood stream. It's very complicated, but it's necessary because the poisons have to be removed in order for us to live. For Uncle Jim, having dialysis is like receiving a gift of life."

Tim sat quietly, thinking about his father's explanation. Then he said, "When I accepted Jesus as my Saviour, you told me that He took all my sins away and made my heart clean on the inside. That sounds something like dialysis, doesn't it?"

"Yes, it does!" exclaimed Dad in surprise. "Good thinking, Tim. Sin has made our hearts impure. But when we accept Jesus as Saviour, He takes away all the sin and gives us the gift of eternal life." He smiled. "One difference is that people on dialysis need to repeat the procedure over and over, but Jesus takes our sin away forever. Dialysis is a wonderful thing, but salvation through Jesus Christ is even better."

"Yeah." Tim nodded. Then he grinned. "But I sure am glad there's a machine that can help Uncle Jim, too," he added in a relieved voice.

HOW ABOUT YOU? Are you thankful for all the wonderful things doctors and hospitals can do? You should be - but you should be even more thankful for what Jesus did on the cross for you. Have you been made clean by His blood? If not, accept Him today.
