August 5

No do-overs

Our culture is based on the concept of second chances. After all, is not America itself based on the dream so eloquently articulated by Emma Lazarus’ poem on the base of the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore”? Millions of immigrants came here to start over.

Students always pester their teachers for bonus points, test retakes, and extra credit. My own mediocre golf scores would be even worse if I didn’t persuade the other guys in my foursome to let me have a couple mulligans per 18 holes.

There are no do-overs after God has made his decisions. There will be no court of appeals. No hung juries. No mistrials. No stays of execution. It will be too late for petitions for executive clemency.

Abraham replied to the rich man who was in hell, “Between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us” (Luke 16:26).

As you believe, so you will live. As you live, so you will be judged. As you are judged, so you will be placed. As you are placed, so you will remain.

Clear the clutter in your life and realign your heart toward Jesus!

Whatever has your attention has your heart. And in the busyness of today’s world, it’s easy to focus so much on the day to day that we forget who really matters: Jesus.

We want to help you clear the clutter in your life—so you can focus on what truly matters—by sending you a captivating new book by Pastor James Hein called What Has Your Heart?

What Has Your Heart? is our thank-you for your donation by August 31 to help reach a $105,000 goal to enable Time of Grace to make much-needed upgrades in our video production—and engage more viewers via TV, social media, Roku, YouTube, and Your Time of Grace just to name a few!
