You'd be Surprised

Today I want to pass on a blog post that got my attention this week, and I think it will get you attention as well.  Before I share it with you, please remember that God called us to help others.  He called us to help reconcile or bring people back to God as well as to offer hope and grace to hurting people.  That is a BIG deal for me, but if you have been reading what I write, that no surprise to you.  It is time to offer people 2nd chances.  It is time to not be a judge but be a servant.  Think about that.

This blog post is from Jamie Wright who calls herself "the very worst missionary" and it was posted on the PEOPLE OF A SECOND CHANCE website.  Here we go...

NOTE:  It hit me, and I have already shared this with several people.  You have met people, as I have, who have been through some tough times and made choices that shocked us.  Yet if we are honest, we too have made some bad choices that could have left us in much worse settings.  By the grace of God... I leave you with a couple verses on my mind.  May God use this blog post and this Scripture to allow us to offer 2nd chances to people we are surprised by.

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.

And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Now that was an Awesome post and reminder that we ALL are "Who does that"--Each one of us "does that"--and we can fill in the blank.

Thank God for Grace--cos where are mess up abounds ( and they are GREAT and MANY) his Grace abounded even the MORE. We can't out sin Grace--Never.

God already knew we could never reach a place of perfection where we would outgrow the need for Grace somehow.

Thanks for sharing this.

May we never think we are better than "those sinners over there". We are 'those sinners over there".

God Bless You..
