God Forgives Sins Through Grace
Jonah and Nineveh in the Bible Truth
Glad to have you back with us at the Daily Bread Bible Study about
Jonah. Before we begin, what is Grace? When
we left off, Nineveh had repented and was forgiven by God. Well,
believe it or not, this annoyed ole Jonah. He even got a little sassy
with God when he prayed "God, didn't I tell you this would happen
before I came here and I ran off to Tarshish because I knew you would
be merciful and forgive the people of Nineveh. So take my life from
me because it's better to die than to live.
Pretty shocking huh? After all he had been through and remember the
touching prayer he gave God from the belly of a great fish. Then he
found it within himself to be upset with God because God chose to
forgive the people. I mean Jonah was just granted the same compassion
a few days earlier from the belly of the great fish and now would
rather die than live because God granted the same for others.
God answered Jonah ... Is it right for you to be angry? So Jonah went
eastward outside of the city and set himself up a little booth and he
sat right on down, waiting to see what would happen to the city. God
saw this and created a great gourd so that it would cast a shadow and
provide him shade in his grief. Jonah was glad for the shady comfort.
God Forgives Sins Lesson
Jonah and Nineveh in the Bible Path
The next day God created a worm which destroyed the Gourd that God
had made. Then the sun rose and the heat of the day rose. God created
a great wind and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah so much so that
he fainted and said again, it is better for me to die than
God asked Jonah if it was right to be angry about the gourd and Jonah
said yes, I do well to be angry even unto death. The Lord said, you
have pity on a gourd in which you have not labored neither made it
grow which came up in a night and was gone in a night and should I
not spare Nineveh which has more than 120,000 people which knew not
their right hand from their left (Knew not what they were doing) ...
The book suddenly ends there ... One can only imagine what took place
at that point.
We all get this feeling inside and want to say to Jonah what's the
matter fella, you spoke God's Word and the people chose to believe
and were saved. What's the problem??? The problem was pride. Jonah
felt that since God forgave the people that his works were in vain.
He went and sat outside the city hoping it would be destroyed.
God Forgives Sins Discussion
Jonah and Nineveh in the Bible Facts
This story is a "shadow" of things to come in that we cannot go and
sin, be punished by God, pray for forgiveness, be forgiven by God and
then step away from that and fail to understand that Grace
is for everyone. Not just ourselves. Soooooooooooo, the next
time you come across someone running and hiding from
God and their words and deeds may be deemed as sin, keep this in mind
... We too are sinners and we have to ask God for His forgiveness all
the time. Judge not lest ye be judged. Let us never become as
Jonah and become blinded by pride so much that we would rather die
than understand the Truth of Grace ...
We look forward to sharing more with you in our Next Daily Bread
Bible Study ... And that will be a study of the Book of Micah. See ya

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
