Reluctance, Repentance, and a Relenting God

Jonah, Sermon Preparation

November 28, 2010 – Morning Worship

Monday Jonah 1, 3
What’s the same between these accounts? What’s different? Why?

Tuesday I Kings 13; Jonah 3:1-3a
Both Jonah and the unnamed prophet in I Kings 13 disobeyed the command of the Lord. Why did they each receive different treatment for their disobedience?

Wednesday Psalm 6; Jonah 3:4-9; II Corinthians 7:8-11
Compare these two examples of repentance. What does repentance look like for us? Why is repentance so important?

Thursday Joel 2; Hebrews 5:11-6:12
How is repentance a one-time event? How is it an ongoing state?

Friday Jonah 3; Matthew 12:38-42
How were the Ninevites a lesson and warning for the religious leaders of Jesus’ day? How are they for us?

Saturday Acts 10; Ephesians 2:11-3:21; Luke 11:29-32
How does the book of Jonah foreshadow the calling of Gentiles into the church? What does this say about our God? What does this mean for us?
