Sunday September 8th, 2019

Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.

What is the first word that comes to mind when you read the word ‘Jonah’? I’m sure for many of you it was the word ‘whale’ (or big fish!) And many of you may remember the Sunday School song ‘Jonah in the whales belly’! I love the book of Jonah – it’s only 4 chapters long but is such a great picture of the salvation and redemption message.

God spared the sailors when they pleaded for mercy. God saved Jonah when he prayed from inside the big fish. God saved the people of Ninevah when they responded to Jonah’s preaching. God does answer the prayers of those who call on Him. God will always work His will, and He desires that all come to Him, trust in Him and be saved. We can be saved if we heed God’s warnings through His Word. If we respond to Him in obedience, God will be gracious and we will receive His mercy, not His punishment. If you haven’t for a while, I’d encourage you to re-read Jonah and hear what God is saying to you through it.

With love & blessings, Sandra
