Passage: Jonah 4:1-11

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)

Running ahead of  god:

I.  Jonah’s Response to God (4:1-3)

II.  God’s Response to Jonah (4:4-11)

Points to ponder:

1. Jonah had the right orthodoxy but not the right orthopraxy.

2. Jonah chooses isolation rather than participation.

3. Beware! Narrow-mindedness plants the seeds of its own harvest. 

4. Our passion must be for people not plants.

5. Remember the 5th Beatitude.
