A Second Chance, can you think of a time where you messed up or wronged someone and God gave you a second chance? Life is full of second chances and ultimately this in my life is a demonstration of God’s forgiveness! I can’t even begin to fathom the times God has given me a second chance even though I didn’t deserve it! Honestly, I have many times asked God why? Why God do You even give me a second chance? I don’t deserve it! I can’t claim to know how your story has unfolded. All I know to do is pour myself out so we all can grow.
The big question is, Zach how has God given you a second chance? I can’t get specific right now, but for me it has ranged from relationships to sin issues! What I can say about them is that God saw me in my darkest and most ugly moments and continually He said I FORGIVE you! We all have these personal things we hold close aka OUR SCARS! I don’t believe our scars define us, but I do believe they serve a purpose, for us to grow. Like all scars, they heal and that is where we must trust Jesus to heal! Thing is, I could regret all these things I have done, but truthfully, I wouldn’t change one of them. They have made me who I am today!
Where do we go from here? We have a couple choices! First, we can put our full trust in Jesus and embrace His good gift of forgiveness and a second chance! Or we can run from Jesus and decide to choose our own path! I can’t tell you which path to choose, it’s your choice, but I hope that you will think about it. Our first inclination is to run away in fear! I know this because I have done it over and over. I can guarantee you though that nothing feels quite as amazing as the forgiveness and second chance that King Jesus gives! Take it or leave it, it is your choice, but I serve a God who is Just, and He gives us a hope and ultimately a Second Chance! HE loves you and wants you to know Him!
