Today’s Reading: Jonah 1:1-16

“This terrified them and they asked, ‘What have you done?’ (They knew he was running away from the Lord, because he had already told them so.)”

Jonah 1:10

Sermon Main Idea: Get out of the way of God’s call on you life.

Listen to Rev. Solomona’s sermon from today’s 10AM Sunday Worship Livestream on our Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/ccmla. Reflect on the Text Points and Life Notes below.

Text Notes: The prophet rejects God’s direction (v.1-3). The prophet ignores God’s correction (v.4-9). The sailors pray for God’s compassion (v.10-16).

Life Notes:

• God’s call is for us, but not about us. How would you explain this point to someone running from God?
• God’s correction is restorative, not punitive. What is the difference between punishment, correction, and consequences?
• God can reach the lost without us, but wants to reach the lost with us. What does this tell us about God’s character?

Prayer: Almighty God, Your ways are higher that my ways, and Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. Please show me all that is keeping me from heeding Your call upon my life and following You more closely, so that I might not let anything keep me from seeking after You. Help me to surrender to Your perfect way and to trust in Your perfect will. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

  1. Enjoying the daily devotionals immensely, and also joining the reading the bible in a year. Although with my schedule I haven’t a set time and admit to occasionally catching up with two a day, but I am current and working to get a time that works everyday. This is in addition to what I work for as a constant practice of daily prayer and meditation on scripture, even briefly, whenever and however I can… while walking to work, quiet moments at work, start and end of day and especially when concerned for something or someone. I am trying to practice ‘giving it to
    God’ without expectations, big things and small and asking daily for instruction and growth that I may be the hands and heart of Christ today. The addition of the daily devotion blog connects me to others also on this journey and adds perspective other than my own thoughts and experience and perspective. It is a blessing. Thank you.
