God is working his redemptive plan in the world at all times and in all places. He is inviting those who will come to join Him in the work. There are various ways in which people respond to this call: some ignore it, some receive it quickly but fall away when it gets hard, some receive it but fade away when they focus on the pleasures of life and then some receive it and bear fruit 30, 60 and 100 times what God initially did in them. In today’s passage Jonah shows us how the call of God and our response come together. The more we are aware how God works in our obedience to his call the more fruit that will be bore, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.
