A Second Time - Activate - August 26, 2014


Read: Jonah 3

Key Verse: “Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time.” - Jonah 3:1

God’s plan remained the same, but Jonah’s heart was now ready to receive the vision. Jonah had an initial opportunity but his heart was set on rebellion, bitterness, and self-centeredness. What is blocking you from answering God’s call on your life? Have you heard from God but are procrastinating? What are the excuses you are giving to avoid faithfulness in your response to Jesus? You can trust His direction and provision!

God gives a second chance to become who He has made you to be. A second chance to help you receive His grace and wisdom. A second chance to open your eyes to impact people’s lives and make an eternal difference. A second chance so that you will serve and use your gifts and resources in an unselfish way. Praise God for second opportunities, repeating His call, and another round of mercy that covers your failures. Say yes to everything God has for you today and in your long-term plans too!
