Jonah...The Reluctant Missionary (2)

Passage: Jonah 2:1-10

Preacher: Randy Johns

Series: Sermons


Jonah...The Reluctant Missionary

Why are we reluctant to do evangelism?


  1. Running from God: Protesting (Jonah 1)
  2. Running to God: Praying (Jonah 2)
  3. Running with God: Preaching (Jonah 3)
  4. Running ahead of God: Pouting (Jonah 4)


What we learned in chapter 1:

  1. It is impossible to escape God’s presence.
  2. It is impossible to escape God’s projects.
  3. It is impossible to escape God’s pursuit.


Running to god:

I. Distress (2:1-6a)

II. Declaration (2:6b-9)

III. Deliverance (2:10)


Points to ponder:

  1. Disobedience necessitates discipline.
  2. God’s grace is sufficient.
  3. Deliverance creates the obligation of worship.
  4. Salvation comes from the LORD.”
