What we do matters. It matters to ourselves, each other and to God. The people of Nineveh responded to Jonah’s warning of destruction by donning sackcloth, sitting in ashes and going without food or water. The king hopes that if his citizens turned from their evil ways then God would change his mind. God does change his mind. Is God capricious or does God hear and respond to his people? In much the same way, Jesus calls for our repentance and belief in the gospel. The time is near when we will have to choose to follow Jesus just like the fisherfolk he called.
- Pray that we have ears to listen to the urgency of God’s call to us to live in the faith of Jesus Christ. We ask that we too could leave all things that weigh us down and follow Jesus.
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council.
