Jonah 4:1-2 (the HEART of the book of Jonah, and the climax to the story!); see also Exodus 34:6, Psalm 86:5,15 Jonah’s a hot mess about God’s decision! Think about it. He spent THREE DAYS in a fish’s bowels, prayed, repented, was delivered from death’s door, obeyed God’s command, and an entire city was spared. […]

Jonah 3:10 God relented and didn’t destroy the city. Maybe, just maybe, the world WON’T go to hell in a handbasket. Doesn’t this give you hope? Doesn’t it give you cause to pray for your lost friends and your political leaders (the ones you revere AND the ones you think are your enemies)? Doesn’t it […]

Jonah 3:7-9 The king issued a decree, and the people repented. When you receive a correction, are you willing to listen? Can you hear hard things?

Jonah 3:3b-4; Luke 11:29-32 (also Matthew 12:38-41 listed earlier in this series) Jonah is back to square one, starting all over again. He went 1/3rd of the way into the city before declaring that the clock was ticking for Nineveh’s destruction. He was all-in! This was a fortress of a city! If anything went wrong, […]

Jonah 3:1-3a Jonah obeyed the second time; didn’t argue with God, and didn’t run from Him, either. It only took one unfortunate experience for Jonah to take God seriously. How many times will it take you?

Jonah 2:9-10 Comparing himself to those who worship idols, he “with shouts of grateful praise” covenants to sacrifice to God, that “what [he] has vowed, [he] will make good,” that he will declare [to the Ninevites], “Salvation comes from the Lord.” This is Jonah covenanting with God that, assuming God rescues him from this mess, […]
