Dear God Tracker

God-Tracking Is Walking With the God of 70 Times 7

Someone once said that God is the God of second chances. I don't think I fully agree with this statement. I think God is not the God of only the second chance but the God of 70 times 7 chances.

Jesus had just completed an amazing discourse on the power of agreement when Peter quietly approached him and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Peter thought, as only Peter could think, that he'd impress Jesus by suggesting that he was willing to forgive a grievance seven times, since he knew that the number seven represented completion in Hebrew thinking. Peter assumed, as only Peter could assume, that there was a limit to forgiveness. However, good old Pete was knocked sideways by his Lord's reply: "No Peter, not just seven times but seventy times seven!" Jesus once again had used exaggeration as a figure of speech to point out that there is no limit to forgiveness.

I thank God that he is willing to forgive me perfectly every time I sin or make a godless decision. Of course, I am by no means qualified to deliberately sin in the expectation of God's forgiveness but I do know that even as a born again Christian I'm less than perfect (sometimes we "born-againers" tend to think that we are perfect). The truth is, although I have confessed and repented of sins that I have actually committed, I sadly find myself doing the same thing time after time.

Have you ever found yourself in this sin-confess cycle? Well you're not alone. Even the apostle Paul battled with this dilemma, however he also knew that grace gave him no license to sin. And yet God views the heart and true repentance comes from the heart. If you've made a mistake or two or if you've made a bad decision then, with a true heart, bring it to Jesus and lay your failures at the foot of the cross. Our God is faithful and just because of the cross of Jesus to forgive and restore you, "seventy times seven".

What is trACker?
GodTracker and trACker owe their origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, OnTrack. Although OnTrack went off-air in 2005, trACker has continued to help people to track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.

Verse of the Week

Romans 6:6
For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.

Quote of the Week
A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes.

"Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation." --- Henry Ward Beecher

Don't Give-up, Look-up!
Look-up and Fix Your Eyes On Jesus!

Be my guide and my guard that I will not mess up again

"Father God I admit that I made a bad choice in life. I'm sorry for my sin and confess it before you. Today I repent of all wrongdoing and wrong decisions and determine never to do these things again. Thank you for your love and mercy and the grace to forgive. Help me to make the most of this situation I find myself in. Be my guide and my guard that I will not mess up again. Thank you Jesus. Amen."
