Death To Self-Reliance

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Jonah ends up in the belly of a fish, and what does he do?  He prays and sings.  His song shows us God’s involvement in Jonah’s situation.  God was listening to Jonah, directing the circumstances, answering Jonah’s cries, and purifying his theology.  Jonah lays down his self-reliance and proclaims the truth, “Salvation comes from the Lord.”  In desperation, Jonah turned to the Lord and confessed his idolatry. 

The fact is this: only desperate people pray.  Are we desperate now, or are we going to wait for God to make us desperate?  Do not let it go that far!  Are you willing to be broken for God’s glory?
