A Second Chance

Key Verse

“Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee” (Jonah 3:2).

Text — Jonah 3:1-10


Prophet Jonah resisted God’s divine assignment for him in the city of Nineveh. He also attempted to flee from the presence of God but God is everywhere. Sometimes a person seeking to hide his sin leaves one part of the city for another or may even travel abroad. Some change denominations without changing from their sinful ways. In some cases the guilt of their sin drives them into more troubles. You cannot cover your sins from God’s searchlight.

Jonah realized his sin after his failed attempt to flee from God when he found himself in the belly of a fish. Fortunately, it dawned on him to pray in repentance. Dr. Henry Kissinger said, “Opportunities cannot be hoarded, once past, they are usually irretrievable.” Hence, many die in such conditions without a second chance. Peter had a second chance after denying Jesus. Judas Iscariot died and now in hell. It is very bad to resist God. Whatever may have happened along your journey to heaven, there is opportunity today to plead for forgiveness from God. Then share your experience to help others to avoid rebellion.


It is very bad to resist God


 Don’t throw away your opportunity to repent of sin.

Prayer for today

Dear God, keep me in the faith all my life, in Jesus’ name.
