A Sign for All Generations

No sign will be given
except the sign of Jonah. ...
And there is something
greater than Jonah here.

-- Luke 11:29,32

Limitless God limited Himself to human form. While human beings die through no choice of their own because of choosing sin, Christ became sin and chose to die through no sin of his own.

Then he emerged from the tomb, as Jonah did from the belly of the fish.

This is our sign, and nothing is greater.

And this is why we pray for our enemies out of love for Christ, who loved us while we were still enemies.

A clean heart
create for me, O God;
and renew within me
a steadfast spirit.

-- Psalm 51:12
