What is repentance exactly?

Dear City Calvary,

In Jonah chapter 3, we see one of the greatest responses to the proclamation of God’s word ever.  When the people of Nineveh hear the message that God speaks through His prophet, the entire city responds (“from the greatest to the least”).  Everyone repents, starting with king on down – even the animals.  So exciting!!! However, this great move of God had to begin somewhere else, over 500 miles away in the heart of the messenger – Jonah.  This is where revival begins, in the heart of the messenger – you, me, our church.  Revival starts with us and then we are to do as Jonah did, proclaim the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   This was our topic on Sunday as we focused on verse 1-4.

This Sunday, we will look at the rest of chapter 3 and see one of the greatest examples of repentance ever recorded.  What is repentance exactly?   The people of Nineveh don’t tell us, they show us – in a very profound way.  So, be there and invite a friend.

 Blessings in Jesus,

 Pastor John
