Jonah 3:1-10; Psalm: 51; Luke 11:29-32

Jesus, the sign

Jonah preached God’s Word to the people of Nineveh. The people of Nineveh repented. God relented and did not bring disaster upon them. God is merciful toward those who repent of their sins. There is something greater than Jonah in the preaching of Jesus because he is the Word of God made flesh. He is the embodiment of the merciful God. If we repent, it is he who will show mercy. If we repent, it is in his name that we are saved. He is the sign of God’s living presence.
