Edging God Out – The main thing!


Good morning everyone!

This morning I feel compelled to set my outline aside and share a very important message in Jonah. I know it all seems like Jonah is on the way down, but the beauty of God is his amazing grace, his unfailing love and his longsuffering.

Here are a few statements I think you will find uplifting:

  • Even in their rebellion, God is still working in our lives of unbelievers… See verse 15, 16 of chapter 1
  • Even in our rebellion, God still deals graciously with us… He doesn’t punish us according to our sin… See verse 17 of chapter 1
  • He still listens to us… As deep as we can be in our rebellion, when we turn to him in faith and repentance he hears us… See chapter 2 verse 1
  • He always gives us a second chance to make things right… See chapter 2 verse 10 and chapter 3 verse 1 were he hears the voice of the Lord again and is re-commissioned

Like Jonah, some may  say to you today, “look you made the bed you sleep in it… God is finished with you… You are useless…damaged goods…food for the sharks… But I’m here to tell you today, there is a God of a second chance… As senseless and silly as you are… God’ s love is embarrassingly that crazy.

Embrace his love this morning, for it never come to an end!

Refine my theological understanding 2. sharpen my ethical rigor 3. and heighten my devotional intensity. These are the things I write about. Welcome you to my blog...

    • Hey Cristal, thanks for the comment! I don’t know where I’d be without a second chance or a fresh start! Toast, like you say, I guess.
