*Confession & Forgiveness of Sins
Get up and go to Ninevah, that great city, and cry out against it, for their evil has come to my attention.” (Jonah 1:1-2 CEB)
God calls to us!
3 So Jonah got up—to flee to Tarshish from the LORD ! (Jonah 1:3a CEB)
We confess we often run from God’s claim on our lives. We fail to love our neighbors as ourselves.
But me, I will offer a sacrifice to you with a voice of thanks. That which I have promised, I will pay. Deliverance belongs to the LORD!” Jonah 2:9 CEB
Forgive us, we call to God. Help us be the people you created us to be.
10 God saw what they were doing—that they had ceased their evil behavior. So God stopped planning to destroy them, and he didn’t do it. (Jonah 3:10 CEB)
Praise be to the God of mercy and grace!
