TEACHING: Taking God Seriously – Part 2
Jonah needed some dramatic encounters with God’s all-knowing, all-powerful presence to take Him seriously – including being swallowed alive by a great fish. Such divine discipline is painful, but God can use it to bring us closer to Him and to prepare us for greater ministry.
- Can you remember a time where you felt like you were receiving chastening or discipline from the Lord? How did that time affect your life afterward?
- Read Jonah’s prayer in Chapter 2. What truths about God does Jonah cling to?
- How are “the big three” attributes of God revealed in this chapter – omniscience (God knows all things), omnipotence (God has all power over all things), omnipresence (God is everywhere)?
- How have you experienced the “bait and switch” nature of sin? Is there an area right now where you’re believing that “life will be better when…”?
