So the people of Nineveh believed GOD, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto GOD: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. (Jonah 3:5-8)
Without a personal relationship with GOD that is based on faith in Jesus Christ and acknowledging our sIn and repenting of it, we are men most miserable. We are lost and damned before a righteous and Holy GOD. He has the right, the authority, and the responsibility to judge and sentence us to condemnation unless we surrender to Him on His terms, and receive the free gift of salvation that He has already paid for in our place.
And if you are truly a part of GOD's Church, repent and return that you may accomplish His will in reaching the lost through you.
