What does it look like for me to have a fresh start, a do-over, when I’ve missed the mark?
In a friendly game of golf, it is a mulligan. In gaming it’s an extra life. In a track meet it’s called a restart. In circuit breakers it’s a reset. In Etch-A-Sketch it’s a clean slate. And in life it’s what we all need. How often have you wished for a do-over?
The Bible is so honest. The people we meet there are flawed like us. Peter was a cursing coward. Paul was a persecutor. Jonah was a disobedient, angry racist. Moses was consumed with fear and anger. Rahab was a prostitute. Elijah was a pouting prophet. Zacchaeus was a tax cheat and thief. David was a wife stealing, lying, polygamous, conspirator. God offered each a do-over!
God is so good. Jesus is so loving. They Holy Spirit is so gentle. God truly is the God of second chances. Because of grace a do-over is possible. In this series we will learn from real people how we to seek and use a fresh start.
