The Book of Jonah: Respectful


livestream - 10 AM BLENDED contemporary & traditional

Jan. 24, 2021

While Jonah is inside the fish, he prays a beautiful prayer. It seems to be a turning point, although there doesn’t seem to be any repentance. Nevertheless, he acknowledges the Lord and praises him. Yet, as we will see, Jonah has not yet learned his lesson. Take away: Christians are good at this: acknowledging the greatness of God and submitting to him, but not getting the message God is sharing. God “bails out” Jonah (is spit out), but Jonah has much more to learn. How many times has God done the same for us? It’s a beautiful prayer, nonetheless.
