Second Chances Pt. 1: The Second Time Around

We’ve all fallen down. We’ve all made mistakes that don’t deserve forgiveness but thank God we serve a God that does not give us what we deserve. Instead, He gives us mercy. We don’t deserve it, if we did, it would not be mercy. He doesn’t give us justice because justice would be an eternity in Hell for our sins, but mercy. Mercy is what He gives us lovingly. “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” What exactly does that mean? What was God trying to say? That we can get away with whatever we want and still go to Heaven? Or is there a deeper meaning to this verse from Hosea? How does it affect us in today’s world? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he dissects Hosea 6:6 in this Spirit-filled message, Second Chances Pt. 1: The Second Time Around, explaining the mercy of our God.

Second Chances Pt. 1: The Second Time Around

God Desires All To Have a Second Chance

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. 

John 3:16-17

The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

The Mercy of God

For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Hosea 6:6

10 And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But when He heard it, He said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:10-13
