God of Mercy
Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
Jonah 1:1-3; 3:1-9
What do I do with God’s Word to me?
What do I do with God’s message through me?
Am I comfortable in God’s presence?
Which communities and peoples and “races” do not matter to me?
What risks and discomforts will I accept in order to declare God’s message?
Does God want me to attempt to effect Nineveh-type community change?
“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me” (Jonah 1:2).
