Studies In Jonah
Jonah’s story shows us a man who knows what the ways of God are like, but who doesn't himself like God's ways. The Lord teaches the recalcitrant prophet through his descent into the deep and rising again that nothing will stop the Word of God reaching the objects of His grace. The Lord Jesus explained Jonah was a sign to a generation that knew God's ways and blessing, but didn't want to share with a needy world. Do we treasure what we have been given and so obey God's call on our lives? Or, do we cling to vain idols and forfeit the grace that could be ours?
