22. Jonah Summary Verse

November 11, 2020

Jonah is one of the more familiar prophets of the Old Testament, but was not the best example. He is often called the reluctant prophet, because he didn't want to go to Nineveh where the LORD sent him. So what can we learn from this reluctant missionary? First, that God desires the salvation of all people. Second that we are not to determine if someone is worthy of the Gospel, but to preach the word and let the Spirit do the work. Our summary verse is from Jonah 4:2: “I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness.” –  (NKJV)
