Daily Verses : Jonah 1 : 1-17, Jonah 2 : 9 – 10, Jonah 3
Key Verse : Jonah 1 : 3a : But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish…
We learn one very valuable lesson from the story of Jonah. Let us obey the Lord when he reminds us to testify and evangelize. Do it immediately! Today we learn from the story of Jonah. God called Jonah to preach about salvation to the great city of Nineveh, but Jonah refused. He then went through struggles where he was even swallowed by a big fish and remained in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights. He finally repented and went back to God’s calling. Imagine if Jonah did not obey, then the whole city of Nineveh would have experienced punishments for their wickedness and for not knowing God. Praise God that at the end Jonah obeyed and as a result the whole nation of Nineveh was saved by God. Let us have a big compassion for all the souls that are lost, so that we can obey and not procrastinate in preaching the gospel to them.
Do not procrastinate in delivering the gospel of grace, tomorrow may be too late.
Today, if the Holy Spirit moves me to start to testify to souls, I will obey and do it immediately.
Isaiah 6 : 8 : Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Today I will especially pray for the people in my VIP list. These are the people that I have been diligently praying for so that they can be saved and know the Lord Jesus.
