The story of Jonah teaches us many things. Conversion is a lesson that every generation needs to hear. At the preaching of Jonah the Ninevites repented. Our world appears to be deaf to the moral voice of God.
God speaks o us through other people. You might be the one that God’s using as a mouthpiece. We were baptized as priest prophet and King. We are a prophet when we speak in the name of God. We are asked to be like Jonah, we are asked to be like Jesus.
Jesus is greater than Jonah. Jesus says follow me and people dropped what they were doing unfollowed him. That can happen today if we take Serious being the voice of God. Let us see how we can do this in our families and in our workplaces. Let us look for places where we recreate and spend time. Let us ask ourselves how can we be the voice of God to others.
Sincerely in Christ,
Very Reverend Andrew Kemberling, V.F.
