Heart Trouble?

Here's the link to the Sermon: A Work To Do In Your Heart

  4. We're not told Jonah's response, why is that?

Turn around or be turned over

Here's the link to the Sermon: Turn around! 

Reading: Jonah 3
  1. How should we react when God gives second chances to a) others and b) ourselves?
  2. God demands that preachers preach His message. In which ways might we fail to do that and what are the possible results?
  3. Why do you think Jonah’s message was so effective?
  4. What is true repentance? How can it be recognised?
  5. Discuss fasting, what is it, what might be sensible things to fast from, and why?
  6. If God is unchanging (Num 23:19), then why does he seem to change his mind here?

God, You're right!

Here's the link to the Sermon: God, You're right! 

Reading: Jonah 1:17 - 2:10

This week the study is less directed, but there is a lot in this passage, so please don't rush through, but take some time to look at the things we didn't have time for in the sermon and also to remind each other of those things we did look at...
  1. How long was it before Jonah prayed?
  2. Take a look through Jonah's prayer and discuss any points that arise as you read through, line by line.
  3. In the sermon we looked at a number of important points for us to apply to our lives today, and there may well be others, spend some time discussing these as a group.
  4. What was the question we were left with at the end of the sermon?
