Fearless Disobedience to the Powerful God [Jonah 1:1-16]


We have many surface reasons to disobey God, but the big root issue is that we do not fear God enough. How can we know we truly fear God? In Jonah 1, we see a prophet who fearlessly disobeys God, which results in God's supernatural storm.  Fearless disobedience towards God results in death, not just in this life, but in the life to come. How can we escape this impending death? Only by looking to God for help in Christ, who by His death and resurrection gives us rescue from certain doom.
