Would you like a second chance?


Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:14-16


We stand on the threshold of a new year. And if you’re like me, you make resolutions that go in one year and out the other.

We determine we’re going to do this or that or not do this or that. And then at the end of the year we look back and see we’ve failed to some degree to keep our resolutions.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t resolve again, by the grace of God, because I have wonderful news for you. The God we serve is the God of grace, the God of forgiveness and the God of beginning again. Don’t forget it. He’s the God of a new start. He’s the God of the second chance.


God’s two great gifts to you are: number one, Jesus, and number two, TIME. God has given you time to work, time to serve, time to love, time to laugh, time to labor. But like any gift, how you use it is really up to you. See this day and every day as a gift from God.
