WHAT IS WRITTEN, IS WRITTEN

BUT GOD GIVES SECOND CHANCES

Psalm 65:11

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.

John 19:15-30

But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!" "Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked. "We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered. [16] Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. [17] Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). [18] Here they crucified him, and with him two others--one on each side and Jesus in the middle.

[19] Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of Nazareth, the king of the Jews. [20] Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. [21] The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews." [22] Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."

Rev. 21:27

Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Introduction:

➢ Many of us have created in our minds an image of God being non-forgiving…never forgiving our mistakes and blunders.

➢ With a concept like this, we cannot forgive ourselves and we continually remind ourselves of our failures.

Perhaps our prayer is like the Poem of Louise Tarkington:

"I wish that there were some wonderful place In the Land of Beginning Again.

Where all our mistakes and all our heartaches

And all of our poor selfish grief

Could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door and never put on again.

I wish we could come on it all unaware, Like the hunter who finds a lost trail;

And I wish that the one whom our blindness had done

The greatest injustice of all Could be there at the gates like an old friend that waits

For the comrade he's gladdest to hail. We would find all the things we intended to do

But forgot, and remembered too late,

Little praises unspoken, little promises broken,

And all the thousand and one

Little duties neglected that might have perfected

The day for one less fortunate.

It wouldn't be possible not to be kind

In the Land of Beginning Again, And the ones we misjudged and the ones whom we grudged their moments of victory here,

Would find in the grasp of our loving hand-clasp

More than penitent lips could explain...

So I wish that there were some wonderful place

Called the Land of Beginning Again,

Where all our mistakes and all our heartaches, And all of our poor selfish grief

Could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door And never put on again."

i. Your earnings of the past year are fixed

ii. Your investments and losses have already been determined
