默想:

“我要宽恕他们的不义,不再记念他们的罪愆。”(来812

静思:

你可曾有过这样的想法:因为你重新犯罪,所以神不会赦免你了?“神赦罪”的“库存”已无力支付?或许你以为,神不允许你求神再次赦免你的罪。朋友,神赦免我们的罪,不受“次数”的约束。

假设你带着同样的罪第五千次来到神面前,神还会赦免你吗?回答是肯定的。对你来说是第五千次,对神来说,是第一次,因为他“忘记”所有“其它时间”的那一次。

我们的神不会对我们怀恨在心。他管教我们,是要除去我们的罪,并非因为怀恨我们。约拿,大卫,马可,彼得,雅各的神是你的神,也是我的神。这些记载在圣经里的名人都曾让神失望!我多次带着“重(chong)犯”的罪来到神面前,求神赦免。你猜怎么着?答案显而易见。

行动:

如果神能给约拿、大卫、雅各等人“再次赦罪”的机会,也必然会给你这样的机会。失败不是“终点”。

BIBLE MEDITATION:

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Hebrews 8:12

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Have you ever felt like you’ve used up all your “second chances;” that God’s reservoir of forgiveness is bone dry? Perhaps you’ve thought, “I don’t have a right to come and ask Him to forgive me again.” Friend, it doesn’t matter how many times we have sinned.

Suppose you came back to God the 5,000th time with the same sin. Will He forgive you? Yes, He will. As far as He is concerned, it is the first time you have come to Him. Why? Because He has forgotten all the other times. 

Our God doesn’t hold grudges. He does punish sin, but He doesn’t hold grudges. The God of Jonah, David, Mark, Peter, and Jacob is your God and my God. Each one of these famous men in the Bible famously failed Him! I have come to Him so many times and asked Him for a second chance. And guess what? He has given it.

ACTION POINT:

If He can give Jonah, David, Jacob, etc., a second chance, He will certainly give you another chance. Failure is not final.
