Upside Down Repentance

Jonah: God’s Call to All

Upside Down Repentance

Jonah 3:1:10

God mercifully pursues Nineveh through a poor message and a reluctant prophet. The people of Nineveh repent and God relents. His message is the same for the people of God as it was for the unbelievers: If you repent, He will relent.”

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.

A New Way to Be Human

Luke 16:19-31

Have you even wanted to do the right thing, but hesitated, and never got the chance again? What will we do with the time we are given? What we do in this life will echo in eternity. God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

  1. The humanity of the Rich Man
  2. The humanity of Lazarus

Why Does it seem that Culture & Society are Getting Worse?

As we continue our study through Genesis, Steve Resch teaches us that the ruin of culture and society comes from refusing to repent, building a culture without following God, and making a name for ourselves. In order to build and create a healthy culture and society we need to give glory and honor to God.

Genesis 4:10-26

The Message of Zechariah: “Behold, Your King is Coming”

  1. Repent & Rebuild (1-6)
  2. Get over the past & look forward to the future (7-8)
  3. Your future will involve suffering, but ultimate victory will come through a future shepherd (9-14)

Live a life of continual repentance and God will forgive and show you mercy. Turn your regret and sorrow into rejoicing. Be fearless, strong and full of hope. God purposes to do His people good. Jesus Christ is the branch who saves us from our sin.

Zechariah 1-14
