As I started this endeavor, I was hoping to have things to write about each day.
Well today, I was not disappointed. Where to start…
God gave me a couple of ideas so let’s jump in!
Today, at school, I had my students retake a test. I teach high school science. On Tuesday, the students had their first test. It was a disaster! Over half of the students failed. Not a good start to the year.
When a student fails a test, there could be many reasons as to why. But this post is not about those reasons.
I want to make note of the retake. Each student had the opportunity to take the test again. Whatever grade they earned on the first try was erased by the second attempt.
Take another shot.
God gives us a reboot.
He forgives us.
That is what the cross is all about.
The reasons why we need forgiveness are numerous. Too numerous to list.
But for all these reasons, there is but one single answer. Jesus.
His sacrifice on the cross grants us a retake.
He makes all things new. You and I can have another shot.
Let your heart be overwhelmed with God and His love.
You can know the joy of having a second chance.
Let today be your reset. You are forgiven. You are righteous.
Sleep well friend.
We will talk more about that whole test retaking stuff tomorrow.
