Jonah 1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil has come up before me"...
Jonah was determined not to follow the instruction he had received from the Lord. And he did his best to run from, and avoid, God. Even so, God didn't walk away from Jonah. He actually pursued him and that led Jonah to repent and get a second chance to do what God had instructed him to do in the first place.
So what does Jonah's story show you about God's love for you? What about being part of His plan? Did reading Jonah's story change your perspective on your opportunity to serve the Lord going forward? Tami W.
