Jonah 3:1 ” Then the Word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time; ‘Go!’ “

The first time Jonah heard God say, “Go!”…He ran in the opposite direction.  So surprisingly, when  Jonah head God say, “Go!” this time, he obeyed.  So what changed?  Not God.  His command was simple, straight forward, and didn’t waver in what He wanted Jonah to do.  Nor was it the people of Nineveh who God wanted Jonah to warn.  They remained a perishing and lost people of the Assyrian capital.  No, the only thing that had changed was Jonah’s heart.  In the belly of that great fish, Jonah had received a second chance…and with it then came an attitude adjustment on Jonah’s part.  For our God is the God of second chances…from Jonah, to the Ninevites, to us… the Lord gives all of us second chances to change.
