Jonah 3:1–10, Luke 11:29–32
Lent is a time to be healed, restored and lifted up. Repentance was for the people of Nineveh the gateway to life, and so it is for us.
We follow One who is greater than Jonah and Solomon; we follow Christ, the Son of the Living God. The Holy Spirit leads us to salvation along the well-trodden path of repentance.
The Queen of Sheba was moved by the teaching of Solomon. The Nineties felt compelled to repent by the teaching of the reluctanct evangelist Jonah.
How much more, then, should we be moved and compelled to repent by the teaching of the One who is greater than Jonah Moses and all the prophets, Jesus Christ our Saviour?
