Read: Jonah 1-4
Marked: Jonah 3:4, And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”
How many have played the game, “What would you do if you knew you only had one month to live”? It’s an intriguing question.
Some might want to tell others how much they love them. As a Christian I’d like to believe I’d be passionate about telling others about salvation through Christ.
The Ninevites had forty days. When they heard the message from Jonah they believed God and repented (V5) and the king proclaimed a fast and called his people to cry out to God and turn from evil and the violence that was in their land (V7-8).
The Word of God has gone out into the world for man to repent, turn from evil, and receive salvation through Jesus Christ. How many days do we have left? We don’t know. Are we willing to listen and consider the message?
