Jonah Series Part 6 - 24 November 2019 - Bruce McCallum

  1. 1. JESUS in Jonah
  2. 2. “If you were 100X worse than you are, your sins would be no match for His mercy” - Tim Keller
  3. 3. 1. JUST BELIEVE - DON’T LOOK FOR SIGNS! Matthew 12:38-41 (NIV) Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to Him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you." 39 He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here.
  4. 4. 2. LOVE IS SELF-SACRIFICE Mark 4:35-41 (NIV) That day when evening came, He said to His disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took Him along, just as He was, in the boat. There were also other boats with Him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?" 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to His disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" 41 They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him!"
  5. 5. John 15:13 (NIV) Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
  6. 6. MARRIAGE REMINDERS It takes both spouses to say, “my self-centeredness is the main problem in my marriage’’ to have a great marriage. The real way to know how much you love somebody is how much you are willing to give. Marriage does not so much bring you into confrontation with your spouse as confront you with yourself.
  8. 8. 4. Sometimes, you go down to go up Jonah 1:1-8 (NIV) When we reject God - it takes us down Down to Joppa Down into the ship Down into the depths of the ship Down into the very depths of the ocean.
  9. 9. Matthew 10:39 (NIV) Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
  10. 10. Jonah 2:9 (NIV) 2:9 But I, with a song of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. Salvation comes from the LORD."
  11. 11. 5. WHAT MAKES YOU CRY? Luke 19:41-42 (NIV) As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace - but now it is hidden from your eyes.” Luke 13:34 (NIV) "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!
  12. 12. “Jesus is the prophet Jonah should have been. Jonah went outside the city hoping to witness its condemnation, but Jesus Christ went outside the city to die on a cross to accomplish its salvation” - Tim Keller
  13. 13. 6. Break down walls of race & religion. Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) “The lengths to which the Samaritan went to help a man of another race and religion were extraordinary, yet Jesus says to us, “Go and do likewise.” -Tim Keller
  14. 14. 7. GO!! Matthew 28:19 (NIV) Therefore goand make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
