DECEMBER 31 – REPENT

12/31 Luke 11:29-32
As the crowd pressed in on Jesus, he said, “These are evil times, and this evil generation keeps asking me to show them a miraculous sign. But the only sign I will give them is the sign of the prophet Jonah. 30 What happened to him was a sign to the people of Nineveh that God had sent him. What happens to me will be a sign that God has sent me, the Son of Man, to these people. 31 “The queen of Sheba will rise up against this generation on judgment day and condemn it, because she came from a distant land to hear the wisdom of Solomon. And now someone greater than Solomon is here — and you refuse to listen to him. 32 The people of Nineveh, too, will rise up against this generation on judgment day and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah. And now someone greater than Jonah is here — and you refuse to repent.
REPENT
We live arrogant lives. We wait until the very last thing to cry out to Jesus. We do our own thing. Let’s vow this year to stop it. Let us go to Jesus before bad things happen. Let’s spend time in prayer for those around us-everywhere we look people are hurting.
