Cary Cox, from Jonah 3:8b-10. We answer some important questions about God himself, in order to think rightly and biblically about God. What does it mean that God relents from sending disaster? Does he change his mind? How can he change his mind if he knows all things? How can God just forgive sinners without justice being served?
Cary Cox, from Jonah 3:10. God not only requires repentance, he also grants repentance! Repentance is the gracious gift of God, as taught throughout Scripture. It was always God’s will to bring Nineveh to their knees before him, through the powerful working of his word.
Cary Cox, from Jonah 3. What happens after the fish? Jonah obeys. Nineveh repents. And God relents! A look at the repentance of Nineveh. Are we repenting before the Lord?
Cary Cox, from Jonah 2:1-9. Jonah prays to God from the belly of the fish. He praises the greatness of God in his salvation, his sovereignty, and his steadfast love!
Cary Cox, from Jonah 1:17 and 2:10. Why was Jonah swallowed by the fish? What really happened, and what was the purpose? See how Jesus interpreted this story, and how it points us to his death and resurrection. The God of the storm is also God over the grave!
Cary Cox, from Jonah 1:7-16. This passage contrasts Jonah’s hardened heart with the responsive hearts of the sailors. What is the condition of our hearts before God? What do we do with our hurts and discouragement and sin?
Cary Cox, from Jonah 1:4-6. Jonah finds that he cannot run away from the word of God. And the Greater Jonah, Jesus Christ, answers the great question of God’s love for us.
