God's Angry Young Man
Jonah 4:1-4
Skip Heitzig

Jonah 4 (NKJV™)
1 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry.
2 So he prayed to the LORD, and said, "Ah, LORD, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm.
3 "Therefore now, O LORD, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!"
4 Then the LORD said, "Is it right for you to be angry?"

32 Jonah - The God Who Won't Let Go - 1998

Who in the world could get mad at God for His love, forgiveness and mercy? Answer - Jonah could. In fact he got mad enough to almost take his pulpit and go home! This is a warning to anyone thinking that just exposure to God and His Word is sufficient. Today we'll examine this problem that many of God's people seem to have.

Did you ever feel like you have gone too far or that God could never forgive you? This eight message series on Jonah is a refreshing reminder of the relentless love and grace that God showers upon His children, even when they don't go His way.

Devotions out at Sea
Jonah 2
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
When someone speaks impetuously, we say that it was a "gut reaction". This prayer of the reluctant prophet Jonah was also a "gut reaction," although in this case Jonah was reacting to the whale's gut rather than his own! Finally this guy is talking to God. He's learned a few things. We can learn a few things too.

What Makes Revival Ripe?
Jonah 3:1-4
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Churches and Christian organizations have used the word "revival" typically to designate a series of meetings conveniently scheduled into the church calendar. Someone may announce, "We will have a revival beginning Sunday and lasting throughout the week!" But real revival is when God moves in the lives of His people, quite apart from any man-made schedule. Let's notice some things that make real revival work.

Did You Forget Something?
Jonah 4:5-11
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Memory is one of the keys that unlocks the future - unless we remember the past, we have no reference for making the right choices tomorrow. There is so much that we learn when we come to know God and yet, because of our tendency to forget, we may need to be reminded of something we have learned in the past. In the last verses­ of this book, God's prophet needs to be reminded of some key truths - so do we.
