So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them.
Hymn: TLH 245, st. 3-4 :
God Loved the World so that He Gave
3. God would not have the sinner die,
His Son with saving grace is nigh,
His Spirit in the Word doth teach
How man the blessed goal may reach.
4. Be of good cheer, for God’s own Son
Forgives all sins which thou hast done;
Thou’rt justified by Jesus’ blood,
Thy Baptism grants the highest good.
