Repent–The Second Chance

Jonah 3:1-10; Lk. 11:289
9-32,  Luke 3:21-22
A popular idiom warns us that “opportunity knocks at the door once.” But not so with God. Our God is a God of second chances and many more. The people of Ninevah took advantage of that. And I have taken advantage of that–when I was kicked out of a mainline church for being queer, God gave me another opportunity, an opportunity in which I have served more people then I could have ever imagined–God is a God of the second chances. Today imagine yourself present with Jesus as he approaches John at the river Jordan (Luke 3:21-22). Hear God also say to you: “You are my beloved child with you I am well pleased.”  How does this heavenly voice make you feel, how do you  wish to respond to God?”  In your mind place yourself at the Jordan, look around you, be in the moment, and hear the voice. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
