Who Knows? Jonah 3: 9-10

This Sunday, we return and continue our series in the book of Jonah.  We will be examining chapter 3 verses 9-10.  In this text we have the response of the Ninevites to the warning about their coming judgment.  They repent, but even more than that they change their ways and show true fruits of repentance.  That proclamation comes from the King of Nineveh – to repent and change.  But will God relent to them and stop the judgment He has said He will bring on these wicked people?  As the king says, “Who knows?” whether God will turn and relent.  Their judgment is clearly deserved (which is God’s justice) but God is also very gracious and merciful.  God sees their changed hearts and forgives and stops the coming judgment.  Tells us a lot of our God, and how full of grace He is.  A lot of questions to answer about God’s justice and mercy – even for today.
