Just what does the Bible state about 2nd opportunities?

Concern: “just what does the Bible state about 2nd chances?”

Response: Jesus isn’t only the Jesus of 2nd possibilities; he could be the Jesus of some other possibility. This can be great news because a lot of us screw up the 2nd opportunity promptly. One of several amazing issues with God’s character is their amazing persistence with us. Psalm 86:15 states it well: ” you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, sluggish to abounding and anger in steadfast love and faithfulness.” Micah 7:18 claims, “that is a God as you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of their inheritance? He will not retain their anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.”

The Bible is filled with those who received chances that are second as well as 3rd and 4th opportunities: Peter, Jonah, Mark, Samson, David, among others. All trophies of God’s elegance.

Just like God is forgiving and patient, He wishes their kiddies become patient with and forgiving of other people. “consequently, as God’s opted for individuals, holy and dearly liked, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and persistence” (Colossians 3:12).
