“The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time, saying, ‘Arise, go to Ninevah, that great city, and call out against it the message that I tell to you.’”
No longer does our story end with Jonah and with all the Jonahs of the world, sitting in the desert wrestling with God, angry enough to die. We are no longer people who have to wait for new hearts. Because the time has come. Jesus is here. The king is here. His heart has broken for us. He has poured himself out for us, so that his heart could become our heart, so that his eyes could become our eyes, his hands, our hands.
