Read: Jonah 4
Key Verse: “But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, and many cattle as well. Should I not be concerned about the great city?” - Jonah 4:11
God is explaining His love for the people in Nineveh and how much they need salvation. God cares about their souls, but Jonah is more preoccupied with his own personal comfort. What is the spiritual condition of the people in your city? Are you ready to be intentional about reaching out to them and leading them to Jesus? God’s heart is to offer heaven and the forgiveness of sins to every person. He implores us to be very involved in His purposes.
Here are a few steps forward in terms of making a difference in your city: 1) Pray for boldness and opportunities 2) Begin to share books, sermons, website links, and other materials that explain the good news about Jesus. 3) Tell your personal story of how you came to know Jesus and the effect He has had in your life (start with family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers) 4) Ask questions: listen to people share about their journey and also ask them about their view of god and His grace 5) Invite people to come to church with you. If you are faithful in these areas, God will take care of the results. Do not be passive, take action that is based in His great love!
