Passage: Jonah 3:1-10

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 2:

1. Disobedience necessitates discipline.

2. Discipline results in deliverance.

3. Deliverance creates the obligation to devotion.


Running with god:

1. Jonah Changes: Re-sent (3:1-3)

2. Nineveh Changes: Repents (3:4-9)

3. God Changes: Relents (3:10)


Points to ponder:

1. God is a God of 2nd chance. (3:1)

2. Jonah should remind us of the urgency of the mission. (3:2a)

3. We must build bridges rather than barriers. (3:2b)

4. Paris is also important to God! (3:3)

5. We must infiltrate the city, not isolate the church. (3:4)
