Bible Story:

Jonah 1:1-17

The story of Jonah shows us an example of when someone who follows God rejects His plans and purposes for their lives. For Jonah, this did not go the way he thought it would. The Lord is sovereign and ensured that Jonah would not be able to persist in his sin, and that God’s purposes would prevail. We are like Jonah, in our sin we reject God’s purposes.


Fall: Review

Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
