God’s Grace and Nineveh’s Repentance
Embassy pastoral assistant preaches this week from Jonah 3:1-10. The big idea this week is that because the word of God transforms us, we repent, and God relents. After Jonah proclaims God’s prophecy, the Ninevites repent and experience the powerful mercy of God. Believers today experience God’s powerful mercy through the person and works of Jesus Christ.
