Jonah's Advice on being Present to God: A Sermon based on Jonah 4

Welcome to Part Four of our Fire Side chat series. Thank you for joining us. You’ll remember that over the past three weeks we’ve invited Jonah and Jesus to dialogue about the Great Commission. The talks usually look like this: Jesus tells us what to do, and Jonah shows us what not to do. We’ve looked at each line from the Great Commission: Go make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I’ve commanded you. And each time Jonah has had something very interesting to say on the matter. He’s shown us how to run from God’s calling to be a blessing to the nations. He’s shown us how to live out our baptism

Jonah's Advice on Teaching the Nations: A Sermon based on Jonah 3

Today we’re continuing our walk through the book of Jonah. Each week we’ve been inviting Jonah and Jesus into a fireside chat. We’ve watched them talk to each other about the Great Commission. The first week, Jesus told us to make disciples of the nations, and Jonah showed us how not to do it. Jonah suggested that when we hear God’s call, its not wise to run in the complete opposite direction.

Jonah told us something about what it means to be baptized: The complete drowning of our old self. The drowning of our disobedience. The drowning of our running away from God. But Jon

From the Belly of the Whale... A Sermon Based on Jonah 2

Last week, we began a new series together on the book of Jonah in conversation with the great commission. The Great Commission is found at the very end of the book of Matthew and it is the last piece of instruction that Jesus gives his disciples. Jesus says, “All authority on heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Last week Pastor Joe led us in exploring how Jonah models what can often be our response to this calling--which is by running in the op

Jonah's Advice on Living the Great Commission: A sermon based on Jonah 1

When I last preached, two weeks ago, we looked at the Great Commission, Jesus’ final words in Gospel of Matthew: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” That Sunday, we put these words of Jesus in conversation with the book of Exodus. Now, over the next four weeks we will be doing a similar thing, except with the book of Jonah. We’ll place each chapter of the book of Jonah in conversation with each line from the Great Commission. Today, we’re going to look at the first line of the Gr
