Jonah 3-4

Chapter 2 cry of repentance
Johnathan Edwards said that “genuine repentance in a ongoing lifestyle, the word repentance means a change of mind but in scripture also means a change in heart and mind, the result should be a complete change in ones life direction in a new life direction, He said that true repentance involves turning away from ones sin with a Godly sorrow confessing it a sin and turning towards God in a pursuit of Holiness. “
Chapter 3
1. Three day journey Notice He made it there in One day
Sometimes you have had your running shoes on running from God just like Jonah but i Tell you your running shoes serve another purpose we are to Run the Race in a way to Win Run For Christ not From Christ Run with a passion that we not be slothful in our approach but we be so filled with the Holy Ghost That we make a three day Journey in one Day Run The Race Run it well
