Jonah: Both the Prodigal Son & Elder Brother

Jonah: God’s Call to All

Jonah: Both the Prodigal Son & Elder Brother

Luke15:11–32

All are lost in sin, rebellion, and anger. Fooled by fake freedom, Jonah and the Prodigal went away from The Father. Clouded by arrogant pride, Jonah and the Elder Brother were full of wrath toward the helpless, who need the grace of The Father. Both stories end with a plea from The Father, who is full of love and mercy for all. What are you living for?

  1. How is Jonah like the Prodigal Son? (Am I free enough?)
  2. How is Jonah like the Elder Son? (Am I good enough?)
  3. How are We like Jonah, the Prodigal, and the Elder Son?

Mission Impossible

Jonah: God’s Call to All

Mission Impossible

Jonah 3:1-5

We, like Jonah, have a tendency to run from God’s plans. Has He made a mistake? Did He really call me? Is this really His plan? Are we actually capable? Am I ready?

  1. God doesn’t call us to trust out plans; He calls us to trust His.
  2. God doesn’t call the able; He enables the called.

Salvation Belongs to the Lord

Jonah: God’s Call to All

Salvation Belongs to the Lord

Jonah1:17-2:10

It is the Lord, who saves those weak sinners fleeing from Him. There is no other savior, and it is not we, who save ourselves.

  1. Salvation is not the exclusive possession of one group.
  2. God extends salvation to the most unlikely.
  3. God will go to extraordinary means to save us.
  4. If salvation is of the Lord, then it’s by His way or manner.
