I love that God is a God of second chances.
The story of Peter is such a great example.
After failing so hard, it is touching that a point of it all was made to: “Tell Peter.”
But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.
This story reminds me of Abraham too.
Abraham was an old man, without children, his bloodline about to end.
But what happened?
God had other plans.
I love that we all get second chances.
Sure you can have a second chance. Just ask Peter. One minute he felt lower than a snake’s belly and the next minute he was the high hog at the trough. Even the angels wanted this distraught netcaster to know that it wasn’t over. The message came loud and clear from the celestial Throne Room through the divine courier. “Be sure and tell Peter that he gets to bat again.”
