            Jonah 1 Bible study notes

 

Reasons to praise/thank God

 

 

 He is always with me whether I want it or not.

  

   He knows that I need Him and is always with me.

 

   He is surely concerned about me. v6

 

   He surely does not want me to perish. v6

 

   He has called me to be His child and to live with Him forever in heaven. v8

 

  

   He is in complete control.

      ie: water, wind, fish, drawing of lots

 

   He is the One and Only True God. v5

 

    He wants all people to be saved.

     ie: Jonah, people of Nineveh, sailors

 

 

 

Examples to follow:

 

 

Give people a second chance, regardless of what they've done in the past. v1, 5, 16, 17

 

   Encourage others to pray. v6

 

   Confess your sins to others. 10

 

   Be willing to make sacrifices for others. v12

 

   Remember how God has saved you and respond with trust, worship and commitment. v16

Sins to avoid:

 

 

Ignoring God's Word. v2,3

 

 Refusing to be part of God's plan to save others. v2

 

Thinking you can avoid the consequences of your sin. v3

 

    Proclaiming faith in God with my mouth while denying Him with my actions v9

How does this passage remind you of Jesus?

 

 

Jonah disobeyed God when he was told to preach to an evil people.

 

  In contrast,   Jesus obeyed His Father when He was told to preach to an evil people.

 

Jonah sleeping during the storm is a reminder of how Christ slept during the storm. v5

 

Jonah willing to die so that the sailors could live points forward to Christ being willing to die so that others could live. V12
