We see in chapter four of Jonah that although Jonah has obeyed God, his heart is far from Him. This message challenges us to consider what we care most about.
As Jonah faithfully proclaimed God’s word it changed the lives of the Ninevites and brought them salvation. Through faith in Christ we have been given great power through the Holy Spirit to also proclaim the life-changing word of God to the world around us.
God blessed Jonah by having a great fish swallow him. He sat in the fish three days and nights, time enough to consider his rebellion and again turn to God in faith and repentance. In chapter 2 of Jonah we take a look at Jonah’s prayer to God which includes reflection upon his life in the pit. realizing life in the pit is costly, and understanding the genuine faith is the way out of the pit. Have you been lifted out of the pit?
Today begins the first of a four message series on the Book of Jonah. Today’s message will show us that we and Jonah have more in common than we may first realize.
