It was gnarly. His Admissions Counselor, Jenny, was very familiar with Teen Challenge since her father had also recently gone through the program. In her last weeks serving with the Admissions Team, she worked extra hard to get Jonathan a spot as a Spring Enrollment student. Though it has been an adjustment to be back in a classroom setting for the first time in about 10 years, he has been catching on quickly, spending most of his free time in the library studying. I was a little worried about being 29 and coming to live on campus, but everything has been perfectly fine.
In the short time that he has been at the Bible Institute, Jonathan has already been an encouragement to many with his upbeat and positive outlook in the midst of a long and busy winter. Talk is cheap, but if you actually walk the walk, it gives something people can follow.
People are searching. I want to get more education and go back and help in any way. I want to use my testimony. You gave me a second chance at life, and I just want to be used. You use every day for His glory.
Jonah and the Second Chance
Do not live in condemnation. His blood covers all of your sins past, present, and future. You are free! Run to Christ and enjoy Him, but what you should never do, is take advantage of His love.
Another second chance gods story
Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. Salvation is a second chance from the Lord. Before Christ I was broken and living in sin. I was hopeless and on my way to hell. Christ gave me hope and He gave me a purpose. King after king did evil in the sight of the Lord.
Why did God put up with continuous evil? Why does God put up with continuous evil now? He is holy. There is a huge gap between God and man. It is incomprehensible how holy God truly is. He walked among us. God was spit on and beaten! His bones were broken.
He bled in an unfathomable way. At any moment He could have called down an army of angels to destroy everything! Jesus died for you and me when we wanted nothing to do with Him. Through His atonement on the cross we were given a second chance. He took away our sin and now we can begin to experience Him. God has given us the right to become His children. He has given us life. Before this all we knew was death. Why is God so patient? God is patient with us because God so loved us. Put your trust in Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish , but everyone to come to repentance.
The Gods of Second Chances
You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. John For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Giving others a second chance. Just as God is patient and forgiving, we are to be patient and forgiving as well. Sometimes forgiving is hard, but we have to understand that we have been forgiven much.
When we pour out grace upon others we are becoming like the God that we worship. Forgiveness does not mean the relationship is going to be the same. We should do all we can to seek reconciliation. We should forgive people, but sometimes the relationship should end especially if the person willfully keeps sinning against you. For example, if you have a boyfriend who keeps cheating on you, this is not a healthy relationship that you should remain in.
We should use godly discernment. This is something that we should diligently pray to the Lord about. Up to seven times? Forgive as the Lord forgave you. We are all sinners and will continue to make mistakes, but Jesus paid the ultimate price for our salvation. Whether the reader is a new Christian, a long term soldier of the faith or a person just asking questions, Second Chances will give them scripture and stories to help and encourage them. Everyone can use encouragement through stories of grace.
The reader will be reminded of the failure and grace that followed for Peter, David and even Moses. Lucado masterfully weaves scripture, storytelling We are all sinners and will continue to make mistakes, but Jesus paid the ultimate price for our salvation.

I'm a firm believer that God's word and the bible doesn't need to simplified, but it does it in a way that is beautiful.
