Bible Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:16-20, Jonah 2:1-9
We often miss what the actual problem is. Truthfully by the time we realize we are in trouble, it’s too late and it becomes easy to mislabel what the actual problem is. In fact, where we find ourselves in life, many times is not the problem but what we did to get there. Join us This Sunday 10:30 am as we figure out What’s Eating the Prophet Jonah; one hint, It ain’t the fish!
2 Corinthians 5:16-20 (New International Version)
Jonah 2:1-9 (New International Version)
2 1 [a]From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. 2 He said:
“In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,
and you listened to my cry.
3 You hurled me into the depths,
into the very heart of the seas,
and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers
swept over me.
4 I said, ‘I have been banished
from your sight;
yet I will look again
toward your holy temple.’
5 The engulfing waters threatened me,[b]
the deep surrounded me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
6 To the roots of the mountains I sank down;
the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, Lord my God,
brought my life up from the pit.
7 “When my life was ebbing away,
I remembered you, Lord,
and my prayer rose to you,
to your holy temple.
8 “Those who cling to worthless idols
turn away from God’s love for them.
9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise,
will sacrifice to you.
What I have vowed I will make good.
I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”
