Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric continues our series The Runaway Prophet with a sermon entitled Second Chances focussing on Jonah 3:1-3.

Jonah 3:1-3.
ICEBREAKER: Apart from God, who is your number one advisor in life and why?
1. What was different about Jonah’s response to God’s call the second time? (v.3) What does this indicate about Jonah?
2. Where is Nineveh located? What implications would this have had for Jonah? What does this reveal about God?
3. Read Luke 11:37-41. In what ways do you think this relates to the heart of Jonah?
4. Jonah was called to preach a message of repentance but was in need of repentance himself. Find one person in the New Testament who also faced this problem.
5. List some reasons why God’s people disobey the Lord. What forms of disobedience are you most susceptible to? Why?
6. How closely do you think your heart matches the heart of God today? What can you do to get yourself more inline with His will?
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?

If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?” – David Livingstone
