Jonah: Fueled by Anger

series: Dave Stone, Southeast Christian Church

Driven to the sea, overwhelmed by a fish, and motivated to finally obey, Jonah has done what God asked. But now, Jonah is Fueled by Anger at God's compassion and keeps running. When you encounter God's extravagant love, how do you respond?

Psalm 103:8 says The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. We love that verse when it applies to us but not our enemies. Jonah was no different. When the people of Ninevah repented and God spared them, rather than rejoicing in the grace of God, Jonah was anger, bitter and pouted to God.
