Jonah: A Story of Surrender

Jonah is not just the story of a big fish and the man who gets swallowed up by it. Sure, that happens, but the story is so much more. It’s a story about obedience and just how difficult it can be to do the right thing. It’s a story about surrendering your plans to the will of God and the constant temptation to run, to hide, and to do your own thing. But most of all it’s story of incredible compassion--the compassion of God in the face of hard hearts, stubborn minds, and disobedient people. Jonah is so much more than the story of a big fish. It’s the story about how much we hate to do what’s right and how God, in His mercy, loves us anyway.
