An Effort is Necessary
When God was about to destroy the town of Nineveh that was riddled with sin, he called the prophet Jonah and sent him to preach repentance! Jonah preached and the people repented and God relented. God changed his mind. He no longer wanted to destroy the people who were great sinners for they had changed their lives. However, there was something strange and interesting about the whole experience. God really changed his mind, when he saw the “efforts” made by the people to change from their lives of sin. It seems that God was more impressed with the “Efforts” they made at changing, than the change itself- Jonah 10:10. Of course God was happy with the true conversion that took place in Nineveh; but nothing pleased God as much as the “efforts” made by the people to change. Let us make that “effort” to come back to Jesus, and allow his unconditional love to be the source that guides us into relationships. Action is important! Let us allow our actions to bring a smile on the face of God and that of our families, friends, neighbours and enemies! Be blessed for we can do all things in Christ who strengthens us! (Phil. 4:13)
