Big Love – Jonah Chapter 3

Pastor Garrett Edwards 

Pastor’s Thoughts

Last week in our study of Jonah, we saw that we follow a God of  second (or thousandth) chances. Jonah looked up and repented, and God gives him another shot…at obedience.
In Jonah 3:1-2 we read: Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time, saying, “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it the message I tell you.”
What God is doing here in chapter 3, is ‘re-writing’ chapter 1. This is the nature of the gospel isn’t it, and of God’s relentless grace? To rewrite lives and eternities. Perhaps you’re at a point where your story requires a ‘re-write’. What do you think you might do about it? Jonah was given a ‘re-write’. He looked up, repented, and now, it was his time to obey once again.
Second chances are not about giving us an opportunity to do whatever
we want to do, rather they are a second chance at obedience.
Join us on Sunday as we continue to explore God’s relentless grace,
and His gift of second chances.
