Sermons in Jonah and the Word of the Lord

 

Jonah’s Self-Pity

by Joe Boot

June 29, 2014 | Jonah 4:1-11

The Calling and Fruits of Evangelism

by Joe Boot

June 22, 2014 | Jonah 2:10-3:10

Who Is This That Even the Winds and Sea Obey Him?

by Scott Masson

June 1, 2014 | Jonah 1:4-16; Matthew 8:18-27

We cannot contravene God's calling and equipping of us. If we resist God's will, He often gives us over to our sin. In Jonah's case God used the storm to discipline His prophet.

 

The Runaway Prophet

by Joe Boot

May 25, 2014 | Jonah 1:1-6; Mark 4:30-41

Jonah's vision for ministry was at odds with Gods vision. As with all rebellion, Jonah's problem with God's call was moral, not intellectual. It is embracing the word and purpose of God that brings life and peace.
