The story of Jonah and the fish is familiar to many of us but most of us have missed the
important message for us today. Jonah shows us how many of us spend our lives. We can
spend our lives trying to control God. We either run away from him attempting to escape
his control or we try to obey to get in God’s good graces. Jonah not only shows us our own
sinful tendencies, he also provides a foreshadow of Jesus. In this series we’ll see how
Jonah points to Jesus as the one who showed justice and mercy perfectly.
