LISTEN NOW!In today’s reality, there are no shortfall events to be concerned about: a slowing Global Economy, rising terrorism, Iranian Nuclear Deal, and porous borders in America. In these trying times, what is the Church to do? Often times, one can reason that we are waiting on God. Is this the case, or is God waiting on us? We begin to get an answer as we look at one particular life in the Bible: Jonah. The book of Jonah describes one season of his life and how God called him to witness to the people of the city of Nineveh.
Instead of being concerned about the eternal reality of the Ninevites, Jonah focused on how he viewed them, not how God had viewed them, and not on the reality that God had called him to go to them. Finding himself on a boat, in the middle of the sea, Jonah finds himself in the middle of a storm. Jonah 1:12 shares how he responded, in the storm, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea,” he replied, “and it will become calm. I know that it is my fault that this great storm has come upon you.” Could the shaking that we are experiencing be because the Church has not responded to the people around us that God has called us to? Watch and hear this full conversation as your hope is lifted in regards to what to do in this critical hour, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: storms, shakings, crisis, obedience, judging, critical, and humility. John, Greg, and Steve shared in this segment.
