Lent Day 8 – The Sign of Jonah

by gary-foote on February 25, 2015

No sign will be given, except the sign of Jonah – Luke 11:29b

Jonah

Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days.
He was sent with force back into the world with a message.
He declared the words of God,
“Forty days more and Nineveh shall be overthrown.”
The Ninevites’ accepted the words of Jonah
that the Lord was not pleased with them.
They fasted and turned from their evil ways.
God saw the repentant actions of the Ninevites and spared them.

Jesus was in the tomb for 3 days.
He was sent with force back into the world with a message.
His Resurrection declared the truth that
“the Kingdom of God is at hand.”
The rest of YOUR story is not yet fully written.
Will you accept the words of Jesus?
Will you fast and turn from your evil ways?
Will God be able to extend to you the same mercy He could to the Ninevites?

Salvation is being offered; what will your response be?
