God loves you enough to disrupt your life and call you to live a better one.

Jonah 3:1 “Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to  it the message I give you.” 

God’s call doesn’t change. We do.

Jonah 3:2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” 

We have a God of comfort, not a God of comfort zones.

Jonah 3:3a “Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh.”

Jonah 3:3-9 “Jonah obeyed the word of theLordand went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it.4 Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming,“Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.”5 The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. 6 When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust.7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink.8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone callurgently on God. Let them give uptheir evil waysand their violence.9 Who knows?God may yet relentand with compassion turnfrom his fierce angerso that we will not perish. 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relentedand did not bring on them the destructionhe had threatened.”

God called (again). 

Jonah obeyed. 

Ninevites responded. 

God relented. God is willing to  bankrupt Heaven for broken people.
