Joy to the world

Hillsong Worship

Jonah was a prophet of God, responsible for bringing God’s message to the people. The word of the Lord comes to Jonah in the first verse of the book, BUT Jonah isn’t too thrilled with the message God wants him to deliver to Israel’s enemies in Nineveh. Bring a message of redemption to his enemies? No Way–Jonah decides to run away from God AND His message. We might be tempted to laugh at Jonah’s silliness–trying to outrun God–until we realize that “We Are Jonah”.  Who is your “Nineveh”? Are you willing to bring them the message a love, instead of continuing in your hate?

Digging Deeper

During our study of the book of Jonah we will be providing weekly discussion questions for Small Groups, Families or Friends to talk about and meditate on through the week. The questions are divided into Discovery Questions (To help you look a little deeper into the sermon focus), Group Connection (To discuss how the scripture is applicable in your life), and Personal Meditation (To think about and apply throughout the week). You can pick up a hard copy in the cafe, or download here:
