    Jonah 3: Understanding God’s Great Grace

    If we are unwilling to be uncomfortable, we eventually will become unfaithful.

      Jonah 3:1-10 "Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” 3 Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. 4 Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” 5 The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. 6 When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:

    “By the decree of the king and his nobles:

    Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.”

    10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened."

    Growing Closer to God Through Prayer
    Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Have you ever wondered "why should I pray?"  Think of this: is it possible to have a relationship with someone who you do not communicate with?  How sincere would a relationship with someone be if you said the exact same thing to someone every time you spoke to them? Add to that if what you were saying was because it was "just routine" to say it?  How valued would that person feel?  How much would that relationship flourish? Join us this week as we talk about prayer and how it affects our relationship with God, as well as learning some helpful prayer practices.

    Easter in two words
    Series: Easter
    The message of Easter is Jesus (my substitute) paid (atoned) for my sins by dying on the Cross.  He is my substitute who made peace with God's holiness and my sinfulness. The mission of Easter is for people to not only share it...but respond to it.  By faith believe Jesus is God and that He died for our sins.  Accept Him as Forgiver and Leader in your life.

    Spiritual War and Armor
    Series: Ephesians
    Epehsians 6:10-12 NIV
    "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. ¹¹Put on the full armor of God so that  you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.  ¹²For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

    How do we live in the victory Jesus accomplished for us?

    Ephesians 6:14-18
    "Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."

    Remember these foundational truths:

    1. God and Satan are not equals.
    2. You can't win the battle on your own.
    3. God accomplished victory and gives us the equipment to live day to day in the victory.
