Jonah, week 1 – Rusty Hutson, February 18, 2018

Jonah 1:1-5

Themes: Obedience and learning the Compassion of God

Critical to Jonah was his willingness, or lack thereof to obey God’s command.

God may ask you to do something you don’t want to do

Psalm 128:1

You can always find a boat sailing in the wrong direction

I Corinthians 10:13

God may send a storm to grab your attention

God will use any means necessary to get your attention, and how we respond is all that matters and its all that we can control (out of faith or fear).

Psalm 107:28-29

Obedience brings fruitfulness, any other path (disobedience) leads to darkness.

What does it mean to be obedient to the Lord when it’s tough?
