Do you remember Jonah? Have you ever wondered what happened to the Ninevites? Nahum records that story for us. In fact, Nahum was a large part of that story. Nahum prophesied to Nineveh, but this time without the plea for repentance. Nineveh had gone too far.
We can learn a few things from Nahum. First, we learn about the mercy of God (1:3). Second, we learn about the goodness of God (1:7). Third, we learn about God’s restorative power. Finally, Nineveh crossed a line. We should realize that God wants to restore and redeem us, but the possibility exists that we can cross a line ourselves. A person can harden his or her heart and cross a line bringing him/herself to a place where God will no longer call us or restore us (c.f. 1 John 5:16). Do not cross that line. Repent today. If you are not saved, be saved today. If you are a Christian who has fallen away, repent and be restored today. Do not waste the call God is extending to you. This time may be the last.
Take some time over the next day or two and read the short book of Nahum (A.K.A. Jonah’s Sequel).
