Jonah 1:1-3 The LORD gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” 3 But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the LORD. He went down to the port of Joppa, where he found a ship leaving for Tarshish. He bought a ticket and went on board, hoping to escape from the LORD by sailing to Tarshish. God’s ways are not always our ways. God gave Jonah a message that he didn’t want to hear, much less obey. It appears here that Jonah was afraid to confront this godless people with the truth about their sin. Later on, however, we are given another reason for Jonah’s reticence (4:1-2). Jonah was afraid that the Ninevites would repent and that God would spare them. The prophet was bitter against this bloodthirsty nation and wanted them to be destroyed. God desires that everyone should repent and receive his forgiveness and restoration (2 Peter 3:9), and we should desire the same. JESUS LOVES YOU!
