Miniphanies® Podcast with Alena Van Dyke

Jonah is chosen, but he runs away from the Lord and his calling. Don’t we all do this? We’re all human, so we all need Jesus and community.

Scripture reference: Book of Jonah

Jonah Flees the Presence of the Lord

Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil[a] has come up before me.”But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So he paid the fare and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.

Jonah’s Prayer 

Jonah 2:9

But I with the voice of thanksgiving
    will sacrifice to you;
what I have vowed I will pay.
    Salvation belongs to the Lord!”
