Sermon Discussion Questions
FOCUS: Jonah was called by God to call Ninevah to repentance, but his patriotic spirit would not allow him to fulfill what God wanted, which led to a lot of unhappiness in his life.
FUNCTION: We will consider where our true allegiance lies—with our country or our Kingdom—and what this means for our priorities as we fulfill the mission the LORD has given us.
Consider the things idolatry cost Jonah: Twice he leaves the mission field God placed him in; 3 times he is ready to die rather than watch God be gracious; He is full of anger, bitterness and unhappiness; He wound up bringing storms and loss into people’s lives rather than blessings. How has idolatry adversely affected your life, or the lives of those around you?
