Not many second chances exist in the world today! It’s more like “three strikes and you’re out.” It’s a dog-eat-dog world!
Jesus has a simple answer. He would say, “Well, then don’t live with the dogs.” Why let a bunch of other failures tell you how much of a failure you are? Sure you can have a second chance! Just ask Peter. One minute he felt lower than a snake’s belly and the next he was high hog at the trough. When Peter denied Jesus, the message came loud and clear, “Be sure and tell Peter he gets to bat again!”
It’s not every day you get a second chance. It’s not every day you find someone who’ll give you a second chance—much less someone who’ll give you a second chance every day. But in Jesus, Peter found both! No wonder they call Him the Savior!
