Sermon Title: The Power of a Second Chance Pt 4: Do Over Because of the resurrection: 1. A second chance is Possible. 2. A second chance is Potential. 3. A second chance is emPowering.
Point 1: Because of the resurrection, a second chance is possible. Though we may fail God miserably, He still wants us to know that there is a second chance. On that Sunday morning, the angel told the women to go and tell the disciples and Peter that Jesus is alive.
