Jonah 1-4, Acts 16:25-40
Not only do Paul and Silas keep their jailer from killing himself, but they also bring him and his entire family to know God and be baptized. God is so awesome.
7When my life was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,
and my prayer came to you,
into your holy temple. -ellie
What God does in Jonah for Nineveh is such an amazing prophetic vision of what He will do through Christ for us!!
What a contrast between Jonah and Paul and Silas!
Jonah, once finally where God wanted him, spoke the words that he was supposed to, but with out the right spirit. He wanted to see God destroy a great city with thousands of people in it.
Paul and Silas went into a city where they weren’t welcomed and cared deeply for the souls of the people there, and was a witness to all that were there and saw a whole family come to Christ as a result.
Jonah gives us the stark contrast of fickle, selfish, and grumbling man against the patient, sovereign, compassion of God.
