Midweek Scripture: Jonah 3:1,2
The word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time, saying, "Get up, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you."
This week we continue to ponder about God’s call and our response. On Sunday we meditated on calls to young Samuel by God and Nathanael by Jesus through Philip.
As we know, not everyone who gets the call is excited and responds the way that brings God glory. Today we are reading Jonah 3:1,2 where God had to send him again to Nineveh because when God tried the first time Jonah chose to get away as far as they could from the City of Nineveh. His attempt to go elsewhere was a failure because of the storm and him being thrown overboard only to spend three days in the belly of a sea creature.
