Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s walk. And he cried out, “Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” And the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and everyone, great and small, put on sackcloth.
The response of the Ninevites to Jonah’s “preaching” is almost incredulously large. A nation falls down to worship and repent and return to God. When we proclaim the work of God this should be the response we dream about. Isn’t God’s grace supposed to be for everyone? [hear sermon audio]
This week, take some time to dive into these scriptures and questions during your devotion time.
To whom in your life might God be calling you to share the good news of grace?
What makes that difficult?
What difference might a relationship with God make in their life?
Do and share:
If you made a list of what you struggle to sacrifice to God last week, return to it. (if not make one this week) Journal about how you did on sacrificing something last week. This week, pick one thing to work on that could help you tell others about God.
What is one thing God has done for you in the last year? Make a short video giving thanks for that and share it on social media. You can tag us @dpumc.
