God sent a storm at sea to reroute His wayward prophet, Jonah.- But He also used that same storm in the lives of Jonah's tempest-tossed shipmates to bring them salvation.- -Arise, call on your God-- Jonah 1-6 -NKJV-.- The sailors' cry to Jonah is one he should already have heard in his own conscience. As God's ambassador, he should have known he was in the middle of a divine opportunity to point pagans to the living God.- Instead, he slept, his conscience dulled by disobedience.- And as Jonah slept, the sailors cried out to their myriad false gods, dug deep into the sea with their oars, and jettisoned cargo once precious to them. - All their efforts failed, just as all efforts of sinful people to save themselves fail. Religion, self-effort, moralism- all seem to be typified by the sailors' vain labors.- But even human futility has its fruit when God's mercy is at work.- As soon as the sailors yielded their trust fully to the sacrifice of another on their behalf, they were saved, and their lives bore the fruit of repentance.- -- the sea ceased its raging- the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice to the LORD and took vows,- Jonah 1-15-16 -NKJV-.- Please join us this Sunday as we continue our study of Jonah's prophecy with, -God of Mercy- The Cry of the Lost.-
