God Chases Jonah

North Bryant Baptist Church

"The Pouting Prophet and God's Mercy for All," a series by Dr. Matt Thornton through the book of Jonah. To try and play a game of hide-and-seek with the Almighty, all-seeing, all-powerful God of the universe is futile. However, the pouting prophet of God named Jonah did just that. When God called Jonah to preach to an enemy city, Jonah ran in the opposite direction. Still, even amidst such a terrible example is Jonah, there is a marvelous example of God's sovereignty over the entire earth. During a mighty and tempestuous storm that batters the ship by which Jonah has fled, even Jonah himself is recorded as telling the sailors that God made the land and the sea. In just the first chapter, Jonah is called, he flees from the call, God pursues him, sends a mighty storm onto the sea, and Jonah asks to be thrown into the sea, then is thrown into the sea. And the most terrible thing about this is that Jonah does not do this as an act of heroism. Instead, he does this because he would rather die than repent.  Still, something remarkable happens near the end of the first chapter. Yahweh, the God of all land and the sea, uses the testimony of this disobedient prophet to turn these pagan sailors to Himself. Pastor Matt Thornton, Speaker. Painting by Sally Santoyo.          Date Recorded: 04/25/21

God Chases the Runaways

The Porch

As we end Colossians, Paul shows us that there's no point where God stops chasing us, even when we run away. In his farewell speech to the Colossians, Paul mentions Onesimus � a slave who stole and ran from his master, just like we run from God. But God chased him. Onesimus believed in Jesus and God changed him from a mess into a missionary, making him the pastor of the largest church at that time in Ephesus. No matter what our past is, Jesus loves us, wants us as His, and uses our stories for His ministry.
