‘Good coaches’ know there is no such thing as a bench. I have watched a lot of sporting events, and I have noticed something about ‘good coaches.’ Every person on their team knows their role and there is no such thing as a bench. A poor coach is only worried about what is happening on the field or the court and lets half of their team sit. Good coaches instill the mission of winning in the hearts of every athlete on the team. Whether they are on the field or on the sideline they are always in the game.
Jesus is a good coach.
This morning’s message will attempt accomplish two goals; we will explore a new and powerful aspect of the God of Second Chances, but we will also finish off our Journey Through John Series. A few of you caught this, but we ended our Journey through John with John 20. Well, there is a 21st chapter in the book of John.
This last chapter in John is one of the most beautiful pictures of a Second Chance in the entire canon of Scripture!
