“It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation.” (Galatians 6:15, NLT)
Have you ever had times you thought, “Man, I’ve blown it now. God will never forgive me?”
I have, more than once—in an hour.
Then you continue to beat yourself up running through your mind all the “If only’s”.
Yet in reality, we don’t get Mulligan’s like in golf do we? As our moms used to say, “You’ve made your bed now you get to live in it.”
Yet, God does offer us do-over’s. Oh, you may still wrestle with natural consequences but God offers a fresh beginning.
It doesn’t depend on following religious rules. It comes as we turn to God and say, “Ok, I want to walk with you in the daylight.”
Then he forgives your stumbles, picks you up out of the mud and tells you, “You are my child.”
He forms in you new desires and leads you by the hand out of the chaos into the light.
I’ve seen it in my own life and in the lives of others. And it’s offered to you as well.
Oh, and sorry Mom for not making my bed.
