Mark 16:7 “But go, tell His disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He told you.”
It’s like discovering the prize in a box of cracker jacks, spotting a little pearl in a box of buttons, or stumbling across a twenty dollar bill you stuck in a book years before and forgot was there.
Not many second chances exist in the world today. Now it’s more: “It’s now or never…three strikes and your out…it’s a dog eat dog world!”
Read again this jewel in the seventh verse. “But go tell His disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you to Galilee…”
Do you see it? And Peter. Peter denied Jesus three times after the crucifixion, just as Jesus told him he would. After he realized what he had done he was filled with remorse, and wept bitterly.
“And Peter.” Jesus gave Peter another chance.
Jesus was fully God, but also fully man. He knows and understands our fleshly weaknesses. He is compassionate and loving. He is a God of second chances.
If it seems like life is beating you down, you’ve made some bad choices, have so many regrets that life is weighing heavy on you, turn to Jesus. Take hold of a second chance to live abundantly by following Him.
