experienced new life

Tuesday January 27th, Jonah 3: Now Nineveh was an exceedingly large city, a three days’ walk across. Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s walk. And he cried out, “Forty days more, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!  Keep in mind, Jonah was going where God wanted him to go whether he wanted to go there or not. Jonah got to Nineveh after three days of being up to his neck in fish guts and Nineveh experienced new life.  Jonah’s method of evangelism would not pass any mission committee in any congregation.  Basically, he walked into a large cite and announced in a soft voice, shape up or in 40 days you’re gonna’ get it.  But it was really God, not Jonah the people heard, and one can expect that it was God and not Jonah that Jonah heard.  In the end, even Jonah as well as the people of Ninevah experienced new life. Jesus rose from the grave after three days and the world experienced new life, the children of God experienced new life, and all of creation was revived and restored.  God does that. God brings new life, sometimes whether you want it or not. When you follow God’s leading you begin to see it all around you.
