New Beginnings

 
 
 
As kids when we played games sometimes we would ask for a “do over”, a second chance, or as it is known in golf, a “mulligan”.  This is when a player makes a mistake or their performance is poor and  they ask that their mistake not count and then replay their turn. 
 
In life, we often think that a “do over” is limited to games and that life doesn’t give second chances.   If you are of this opinion, think again.  Jesus gives us a second chance.  We have been given the greatest opportunity to have a  “do over” and all that is asked of us, is that we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior.  Faith that we accept Christ Jesus, who has died for our sins so that all who believe are given a new beginning, freed from the chains of our past mistakes.
