As a prophet of God, it was Jonah’s business to deliver the counsel of God wherever it might be needed. But when God tells him to go to Nineveh to preach, he immediately sets sail in the opposite direction. You see the people of Nineveh weren’t very nice folks. They were ruthless in battle and vicious in conquest. They weren’t satisfied to defeat their enemies; instead, they seemed to delight in torturing and humiliating them.
Less than a month from now this church will step out in faith, the radical faith of our baptism and our calling. We will begin a new beginning—a time to come together in small groups to pray, reflect, and discern how God is calling Woodhaven to be the living Christ in the world. If we are true to our baptism, we cannot make ourselves comfortable, cannot do only what will be appreciated, cannot be satisfied with the way things are in the world.
What can we give to God in response to his gift of Jesus? In Jesus, God has given us boundless love and compassion; God has given his very life for us and has given us eternal life. Our yearly pledge to the church, our tithe, seems quite little in comparison.
