What if Jesus said this to Dallas? What if he said this to New York City? I can imagine it.
Jesus is in our midst. He is performing great and mighty acts of God right now. Do we see it? Do we change our minds and ask for mercy?
We should ask for mercy. We should beg for forgiveness. Jesus challenges us to do so.
We need to radically change our mind and act differently. This is known as repentance. The Greek word is μετανοέω mĕtanŏĕō — Meaning: I repent, change my thinking, change the inner man.
God is God. We may not fully understand His ways but we must understand in our heart and act accordingly.
He is merciful.
He has forgiven us.
“If Tyre and Sidon had been given half the chances given you, they’d have been on their knees long ago, changing their mind (repent) and crying for mercy.” ~Jesus
