Jonah: In God's Hands
Maybe you have heard about Jonah, the prophet who spent three days in the belly of a fish, but there is more to the story than Jonah’s deliverance from the depths of the sea. This prophet of God takes some real issue with just who God is and what He does. In rebellion, he runs away from God, resist Him, and throws accusations at Him instead of praise. We may be more like Jonah than we know, but God’s salvation is greater than we may have imagined. This is a story that points us to Christ and reveals a salvation that “belongs to the LORD” (Jonah 2:9). It’s a story of a God who is patient and kind, gracious and merciful, “slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love” (Jonah 4:2).
