Does God Give a Second Chance? - 07/01/2013

Sooner or later everyone feels they have failed- they have failed friends, family and even God. Is there ever a second chance to get it right and to do what we are called to do? "And the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time. Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give to you."   Jonah 3:1-2, NIV. SUMMERY Jonah was commanded by God to go to Nineveh and preach repentance, but the people of Nineveh were the enemy of Jonah's people, so he took a boat going in the opposite direction. A fierce tempest threatened to sink the ship and he told the sailors to toss him overboard since it was God's judgment on him. In the sea God sent a great fish to swallow him; while in the fish Jonah repents and worships the Lord. After three days the fish spews Jonah out on a beach, and there the Word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time. REBELLION Jonah had a clear instruction from the Lord. It was simple, "Go this way and say this thing." In the book of Jonah his nationalistic pride is revealed as the reason he didn't want to obey God; he ran in the other direction rather than preach the message to his enemies. In other words God said go right and he went left. REPENTANCE Jonah's prayer of repentance is one of the most elegant and poetic chapters in the Bible,      * He confesses his sin.      * He avows his submission to God.      * He declares God right.      * He affirms his faith in God. &nbs...
