One More Chance

She thought she had one more chance but she didn't - We can have the same misunderstanding spiritually
She was texting while driving when she ran a stop sign, was broadsided, flipped three times, and somehow survived. 

Understandably, she became an outspoken advocate against texting and driving. 

However, a year later, she was killed ... you guessed it: she was texting and driving.

She'd come so close to death and survived ... how could she repeat such dangerous behavior?

This true story is a common spiritual scenario: people wreck their lives with sin, God offers an escape, they accept God's help but later return to their sin (Proverbs 26:11).

I'm not talking just about drug addicts here. I'm talking about you and me.

Do we think God's patience has no limit? Do we think it won't hurt us "one more time"?

"Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy." Proverbs 29:1

Jesus said, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.
John 14:21-23

Let's love and obey Him, dear friends.
