A Wave A Whale and a Worm

Jonah 1:1-14

To help the church realize the mission of the church




What did Jonah run

            Because the Ninevites were not Jews

          Did not want to be a false prophet

          Feared the Ninevites

          Protest against God’s move toward the violently wicked

                   Witness to Jonah’s enemies

Why  do we run from God’s call

            Do we believe “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you?

Great commission

Still we avoid being a witness

Our running away from our call has consequences



          Friend family lost


Crisis of belief


Still trying to hide, denial

            Try to rationalize the situation

Brought him back to real life



          He was acting like a prophet again



God was finally able to get Jonah to do what he wanted

          Give his life for the message

Jonah still could not do it himself
