Jonah - God's Heart and our Part in the City - 6 October 2019 - Bruce McCallum

  1. 1. BACKGROUND & CONTEXT Jonah 1:1-3 (NIV) The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." 3 But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. …
  2. 2. “Go to the great city of Ninevah…” 1. It was unprecedented 2. Ninevah was a horrendous city 3. Jonah was a highly unlikely candidate
  3. 3. 2 Kings 14:25 (NIV) He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Sea of the Arabah, in accordance with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through His servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher.
  4. 4. We mistrust God and run in the opposite direction
  5. 5. NOTHING NEW : ADAM & EVE Genesis 2:16-17 (NIV) And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die." Genesis 3:6 (NIV) 3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
  6. 6. TWO WAYS TO RUN FROM GOD 1. Those who reject God Romans 1:29 (NIV) They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips…
  7. 7. TWO WAYS TO RUN FROM GOD 2. Those who seek to follow God Romans 2:17-18 (NIV) Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and brag about your relationship to God; 18 if you know His will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law
  8. 8. BOTH HAVE ‘TURNED AWAY’ Romans 3:10-12 (NIV) As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."
  9. 9. JONAH CHALLENGE 1. Are you willing to go to the city around us? 2. Are you willing to trust God to do exactly what He says to you to do in the city - even if you don’t fully understand Him?
