Does God Give People a Second Chance? (video & Text)


  I don’t believe in second chances. I believe in unlimited chances of God’s love and mercy. “Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times : but Until seventy times seven. (Matthew 18: 21,22) He didn’t mean to stop forgiving after 490 times. He was talking about unlimited forgiveness and mercy. If you have been saved any length of time, you will know what I meanthat you need God’s forgiveness, and loveand mercy every day. You know that you need more than just a second chance. God does have only one condition thoughand that is, that we come to him through faith in his only begotten Son Jesus ChristJesus said, “No man cometh unto the Father but by me”(John 14:6). The way we forgive others (and forget) is the way God will treat us.”We pray in the Lords Prayer “Forgive us our trespasses, AS we forgive.” A Christian is not perfect but forgiven. When Jesus washed his disciples feet he was trying to show us that even though once was enough for salvationstill everyday we need to be washed and cleansed by his love and forgiveness as we walk through the dirt of this world. “Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; he riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.” ( John 13:3-11). This brings us to the question,” was Judas saved?” I believe it is possible that Judas got saved when he realized what he had done. ” For with God nothing shall be impossible.” ( Luke 1:37). What do you think?
