    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

  • Swallowed Up

     | 3,853 views

    Any time you run from God, you never go “up"; you always go “down.” God sometimes allows us to face frightening circumstances so that we will learn to trust and obey Him. It’s always best to obey the Lord right away - then we won’t be “swallowed up.”

    Opening illustration: Being shocked by electricity can be very dangerous. Just ask professional golf legend Lee Trevino. He was struck by lightning while sitting under a tree during a tournament several years ago. He said, “It bolted my arms and legs out stiff, jerked me off the ...read more
