Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Jonah

Key Text: Jonah 1:11-16

Description:  Jonah gives the pagan sailors a false impression of God and continues in his flight from God — even seeking his own death before repenting and obeying God’s command to go to his enemies. But God pursues Jonah with a storm. We find out in this passage that God is also pursuing the pagan sailors, and Jonah’s rebellion is what God uses to display His grace and mercy to them.

God the Storm Chaser [Jonah 1:4-10]

Sermon Notes

Date: 02/10/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Jonah

Key Text: Jonah 1:4-10

Description:  Jonah is on the run and running hard away from God. God calls him to Nineveh, and he heads in the opposite direction towards Tarshish. God pursues Jonah with a violent storm to wake Jonah from His sinful slumber. The storm shows us two things about God’s pursuit of man. The first is that it is great and the second is that it is gracious.

Jonah is on a ship with pagans representing many nations all serving the idols of their land. Jonah represents one type of person who flees in the path of the Pharisee while the pagan sailors represent another type of person who flees in the path of the Prodigal. In this story we see God pursuing both Pharisees and Prodigals, which is good news for us.
