Jonah: The Runner, Fainter and Pouter

May 20th, 2010

This is a deeper look at the Book of Jonah and how it is relevant to believers today.

Jonah was a prophet who received a command from God but did not want to see God’s will come to pass. In this four chapter book, Jonah goes through a progression from “Jonah the Runner” to “Jonah the Fainter” to accomplishing God’s will and seeing a merciful and forgiving God save an entire city to finally “Jonah the Pouter.” Throughout this book, we see Jonah as a person struggling with his emotions and irrationality but moreover how God is faithful to accomplish His Word and to not leave Jonah alone.
