  • A Futile Effort Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 13, 2019
     | 62 views

    God spoke to Jonah, calling him to go and cry against Nineveh. Foolishly, Jonah thought he could flee the presence of God. However, God intended for Nineveh to hear a warning, and He intended Jonah to deliver that warning. It is futile to try and flee God's presence!

    A Futile Effort Jonah 1: 1-10 Having considered the introduction for Jonah, I want to remind us of the major theme of the book. Most tend to focus solely on Jonah’s miraculous deliverance from the belly of the great fish, but that is just one scene from this account in Scripture. In fact, that ...read more

    This message looks at the storm that Jonah found himself in while running from God

    Storms of Life 1 It seemed that whenever Dad and I swapped stories about the time we spent together at sea we always wound up talking about storms.

    Contributed by Dean Courtier on Sep 8, 2018

    The concept and purpose of a divine call is not something we create, it is something God places within us. Have we responded to or rejected God’s specific call on our lives? Throughout history God has called people to Him and called people to serve Him. Let me tell you about some of them

    We continue in our series Hope Found Here and this month we are considering Hope in the Call or Calling of God. The dictionary defines calling as: a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence. The concept and purpose of a ...read more

    The beginning of the story of Jonah

    The day turned out bright and clear. The captain turned an admiring eye to the trim of his ship following the single main mast up toward the azure sky.

  • Anywhere But Nineveh

    Contributed by John Gaston on Apr 29, 2018
     | 5,686 views

    God has a Nineveh for every one of us -- a place we don't want to go; a command we don't want to obey. Going to Nineveh is unpopular, it will cost us, it doesn't make sense and it's hard. But God's purpose in dealing with us is to save many souls.

    ANYWHERE BUT NINEVEH Jon. 1:1-17 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. A city slicker pulled up to a farmhouse. He saw a farmer's wife on the front porch. 2. He pointed down the road; "Can I get to Quincy that way?" "Yep." "How far is it?" "25,000 miles!" 3. "What?" How far is it the other way?" ...read more

  • Aligning My Will With God’s Series

    The amazing story of Jonah reminds us: 1) Don't run from God, 2) When life gets you down, look up, 3) Respond to God's second chance, and 4) Get God's heart for people. Like Jonah, we need to give up the "reluctant prophet" role and stay in God's will.

    Jonah 3:1-10 Aligning My Will with God’s Prophets with a Purpose – Week 2 Do you ever feel like some people are beyond hope, that they are incapable of change? Or maybe you’ve felt like God wanted you to do something, but you resisted that urge? If so, you can identify with the prophet Jonah. ...read more

     | 4,985 views

    Obeying the voice of God the first time you are told

    There is much to be said and much to be learned about a preacher named Jonah. God had a message to send the people of Ninevah and the mouthpiece He chose to use decided to go a different way. How many times in my life I have chose to go the wrong direction when God spoke. In the first chapter and ...read more

     | 8,250 views

    The story of Jonah is not just a Big Fish Tale. It's a true story with an incredible message relevant to our time. It's a message about a God who cares for all lives, even those of our enemies and those who hate us.

    INTRODUCTION: Today I want to tell you a BIG FISH TALE. How many fishermen do we have here today? Now our fish tales are always the truth, right? I caught a fish this big!

  • Fleeing From God Series

    Contributed by D Marion Clark on Mar 6, 2016
     | 4,318 views

    To escape the presence of God is not rational thinking, certainly for a prophet of God. But how many of us are rational when we reject God’s commands and escape his attention? And that leads us to consider how much Jonah is like us.

    Jonah 1:1-4 Fleeing from God 10/19/14 D. Marion Clark Introduction Responding to the call of God is a mixed bag among biblical characters. There is Abraham, the model of obedience. God calls him to leave his homeland and he leaves. God calls him to sacrifice his son, and he rises early the ...read more
