And He Himself gave some to be....evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ...

Go to Nineveh: The Do-Over

God called Jonah to go to Nineveh. Jonah went the opposite direction and tried to run from the presence of God. God sent a storm and almost sank the ship, identified Jonah as the cause, and still Jonah stubbornly refused to obey to the point that he was willing to be thrown overboard and drown instead of obey the call to go! "I'd rather die!"

He was tossed overboard, began to sink, and was swallowed whole and alive by a great fish. He remained stubborn, enduring three full days in the fish before he prayed and cried out to God!!

Then God spoke to the fish who spit Jonah up on dry land. And God told Jonah a second time (a do-over) to go to Nineveh. Jonah immediately went to Nineveh and preached the message that God gave him.

To learn more about what happened as Jonah preached in Nineveh be sure to listen to this week's sermon from Jonah 3:1-10, titled:
Go to Nineveh: The Do-Over.
