The LORD commands His creation- and His creation obeys.- This is true of every star and planet in the universe- -The heavens declare the glory of God-- Psalm 19-1 -NKJV-.- And this is true of every animal- all creatures carry out God's purposes for them- -- the ox knows its owner and the donkey its master's crib-,- Isaiah 1-3.- Creation's fulfillment of God's design is made clear in Jonah 1-2. The wind and the waves respond to God sovereign purposes. So, too, the great fish prepared for Israel's runaway prophet-- -So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out onto dry land,- Jonah 2-10.- What a sad state- A fish uniquely prepared by God to carry out His purposes obeyed- a man uniquely made in God's image to carry out His purposes disobeyed.- But the gospel is an even greater outrage, don't you think-- God so often is pleased to give His disobedient people another opportunity to step into His purposes for them, another chance at obedience-- -Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time...- Jonah 3-1.- We hope to see you here this Sunday as we consider, -God of Mercy- Second Chance Obedience.-
