Jonah

Jonah

May 2017 - June 2017
At first glance, the principal character in the book we are studying for the next month seems to be Jonah, but a closer look reveals that the title character in this narrative is God Himself. The Old Testament book called Jonah is not about a whale, a reluctant prophet, or even a perishing people in Nineveh. It is about God who is accomplishing salvation through judgment and mercy. Jonah said it simply (Jonah 2:9) “salvation belongs to the Lord.” If you keep your attention keen and your eyes peeled in these four short chapters, you’ll be overwhelmed and awed to discover God all over again. His attributes, his character, and his ability swim through the entire book. The story opens with the word of the Lord (1:1), centers around acts of the Lord, and concludes with the word of the Lord (4:9-11). From beginning to end, it’s all about Him.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - With the renewed call to go to Nineveh Jonah is given a second chance to obey the God from whom he has tried unsuccessfully to flee. Jonah has learned that God is able to deliver anyone, anywhere, but will he take the message of such mercy to the foreign and frightful Assyrians? Does the mercy of God towards him, change him into a merciful person? In Jonah chapter three we will discover the greatness of God in how he can use salty believers with simple messages to bring significant revival to the hearts of sinners.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Do you know and believe that God loves each of us so much that He brings circumstances into our lives to show us our idols? He actually allows difficulties in our lives that reveal our wrong thinking about Him and ourselves. He uses situations to showcase our insecurities and our need for Him. But let’s be honest we don’t always like it! We get frustrated and so we run. We are irritated so we attempt to hide. We withdraw and sulk in our self-pity. We are filled with self-righteousness and sit in judgment of God. But God finds us and specifically reveals our shortcomings and meets us with His grace. His mercy is there for any that make a movement toward Him. God is showcasing His desire to save the lives of all of the main players in the book of Jonah. He wants to save the sailors, the Ninevites, and the prophet. So don’t you think that God wants to save you?

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The Sovereignty of God over a believer through every phase of his life is astounding in Jonah 1:7-17. God had even orchestrated Jonah’s life, Jonah’s rebellion, and Jonah’s consequences so that they would be tools needed to convert sinners. The storm created by Jonah’s rebellion was the perfect backdrop for them to meet the one true God, the One who governed the sea. Do you ever mourn a season of your life that you feel held wasted years with no redeeming qualities? God can use anything! He’s the Master of taking the bits and pieces of our leftovers and making something amazing out of it. He gives “beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness” so that He might be glorified (Isa. 61:3). Have you, like Jonah, mishandled the divine interruptions that have come your way? God can use anything, even the leftovers, for His glory.
