Life is full of lost opportunities and painful regret. Have you tried something and failed? Do you need a second chance?
In tennis, you get a second chance to serve the ball. In basketball, a free throw is a second chance to make a shot. In football, the offense gets a second, third, and fourth chance to make a first down. But in the game of life, you don’t always get a second chance.
However, the God of the Bible specializes in second chances. Onesimus, a runaway slave and a cracked pot, received freedom, forgiveness and a second chance because “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”(2 Corinthians 5:17; Philemon 1).
