Disobedient Prophet Thrown Overboard

The word of the LORD came to Jonah... "Go..." But Jonah ran away from the LORD – Jonah 1:1-3

Every Christian, regardless of nationality, economics or circumstances, has been commanded to obey the words of Jesus to take His Name and teachings throughout the whole earth, especially to those who have never heard it. Jesus didn't ASK you to GO. He COMMANDED you to go, and to do everything possible with your time, talents and resources to see the kingdom of God established among the unreached nations of the world.

Now that you know this, what will you do? If you have been living for your own desires and plans, please fall to your knees and repent! Ask the Lord Jesus to change you and to show you where and how you are to be involved with His command. There is no time to waste! Your life here on this earth will soon come to an end, and an eternity awaits. Will you have something to show the King when you stand before Him? That which He values the most is an obedient and contrite heart, and a fire to go into the whole world and make Jesus known to mankind.

The time is short. Please don't delay! Stop making excuses, and don't wait until you are perfect, or you will never do anything.

Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever – Daniel 12:3

And Jonah stalked
to his shaded seat
and waited for God
to come around
to his way of thinking.
And God is still waiting for a host of Jonahs
in their comfortable houses
to come around
to his way of loving.
– "You Jonah" by Thomas Carlisle
