Scripture: Jonah 1:11-17

Jonah’s Sacrifice

True goodness?
Die & get it over with?

The Pattern

Parents’ example
God described as a parent

  • Psalm 103:13
  • Proverbs 3:12
  • Hebrews 12:7
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12
  • Isaiah 49:15
  • Ephesians 1:5
  • Romans 8:15-17

God’s grand Redemption Plan
Love others God’s way

Greater than Jonah

Matthew 12:38-41

Wrath was Satisfied

Sea was calmed
Storm showed God’s wrath
Jesus sacrifice was a propitiation for sin
Romans 3:25; Hebrews 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10; Romans 8:1

Take Aways

Have you come to see yourself as sinner who needs to forgiven and saved?

Do you live your life to serve others, as Jesus did, or are you waiting for others to serve you?

Based on God’s love and mercy to you, do you have compassion for the lost and are you willing to share the Gospel with them?
