The Pastor's Desk Image
Sometimes when you make a mistake in life you feel like it’s all over for you. But the game of life isn’t like a game in which you only have 1 chance to win before it’s over. God will give you a second chance. Abraham  was a hero. He was a giant in the faith. He was a role model. He was the father of many nations but in Genesis chapter 16 something happened in his life that smeared his name. Abraham took a woman that was not his wife. He slept with her and had a son named Ishmael. That was an ugly chapter in his life and of course all of us have ugly chapters. But thank God for being a God of a second chance. Sometimes your family won’t give you another chance, but God will. Sometimes your boss wont give you another chance but God will. Sometimes your friends may not give you another chance but God will. Because the God we serve is a God of a second chance. After Abraham messed up God was quiet for fourteen years. Then at the age of 99 God showed up again. No matter who you are. No matter what you've done if you are still alive then God still has a plan for your life, and it is far greater than anything you could ever imagine.
