A Familiar Story
  1. God calls Jonah to preach judgment upon Nineveh.
  2. Jonah refuses thrown overboard swallowed by
    fish repents/prays to God.
  3. God calls Jonah againhe goes they repent.
  4. Jonah upset with God were left with a question
    and a cliff hanger ending. 411

A Not So Familiar Lesson
  • It was not just a lesson of judgment and
    repentance
  • It was to help believers (then and now) see the
    need to have a heart like God toward all.
  • Only in this way can our repentance be truly
    linked to restoration.

  • Repentance Restorationfor us

5
Jonah Not Unlike Certain Christians Today
  • Our understanding of repentance may be limited to
    self.
  • We may know that God is merciful toward us. Ch. 2
  • Some may even know of His mercy toward others.
    42
  • Too many, however, have an us verses them
    mentality

6
The Book was Written for Believers
  • Jonah needed to learn to have a compassionate
    heart upon the lost. 49-11
  • This book was written with this lesson in mind.
  • The question and cliff-hanger like ending
    impresses this very point upon believers to
    ponder, reflect, judge and restore what is
    lacking.

7
  • Is Our HeartLike God?

8
Jonah vs. Pagans
  • Jonah had more compassion on a plant than 120,000
    precious souls, let alone animals. 410
  • Even the sailors (111-14) and the king of
    Nineveh (36-9) had more compassion than Jonah.

9
What is Our Heart Like?
  • Like Jonah?
  • Or, like God?
  • God purposed that those who love Him be conformed
    to the image of His Son. Rom. 829
  • Those who are learn true repentance and are
    restored to our God.
