The message of Jonah to us today is both provocative and prophetic. It reminds us that God has a passion for reaching people that far exceeds our own. It reminds us that He is deeply affected by human sin and consistently seeks to win people back to Him by extending His outrageous grace to them.
We all have something of Jonah in us. Like him, we are often wrapped up in our own concerns. But God gave Jonah a wake-up call he would never forget, setting him back on the path to achieving his destiny. He can and will do the same for us! We may have messed up in the past or feel disqualified from doing anything great for God, but Jonah's life is the ultimate evidence of the "God of the second chance."
Greg Haslam takes us on a journey to help us understand and cooperate with the will of God for our lives (including our propensity to resist, hide and sometimes run away) and highlights the power of what even one person can do if fully surrendered to the Almighty.
