Reversals and Prayer

Jonah 1:16-2:10

Abraham Cremeens

May 19, 2019

Jonah caused quite the mess and it was his own fault. His choice to disobey God and go in the opposite direction found himself in the heart of a stormy sea. However, this finally brought him to a place where he cried out to God in prayer. He came to a place in his heart where he could celebrate his God who reversed his condition from death to life. He then responded with gratitude, commitment, and worship to the God who saved him.

Life requires U-Turns. Some big and some small. The book of Jonah is full of them. We're all walking on a path that is the wrong way, but by his grace, God turns us around 180 degrees on a path towards him. In light of this, in the book of Jonah we'll be focusing on four themes; the nature of God, the response of people, the mission of God, and the person of Christ.

God has given us every reason to celebrate and that is what we seek to do in this series. On Palm and Resurrection Sundays we will focus on what some refer to as “The Christ Hymns” of Philippians 2:6-11 and Colossians 1:15-20. After that, we will celebrate 75 years of existence as a church family. We will invest time in Ephesians 1:3-14 and Ephesians 2.1-10. In the end, our goal is to celebrate Jesus Christ and the work he is doing through his church.

God has a purpose for this world that he designed before time began. God called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob into that plan and gave them promises to hold onto as they took steps of faith in active obedience. We also fit into God’s purpose as we walk by faith to wherever he takes us. Ultimately all of our stories point to the glory of God as he fulfills his plan in this world.

A Jesus Christmas is a joyful Christmas. The experience of Christmas may mean different things to different people, but the reality of Christmas is Jesus Christ. That means the most pressing issue for each of us this Christmas has nothing to do with presents, stockings, mistletoe, or even family. It is the posture of our heart toward Jesus.

The Psalms of Ascent (Ps 120-134) offer us help on the journey of our lives as we walk with God through the good times and bad. These psalms help us approach God in worship via avenues of lament, thanksgiving, praise, and celebration. They lead us into worship on the journey: bringing who we are (transparency) to who God is (confidence) together with God’s people (community).  

In Titus, we find the fundamentals of a healthy church. God is clear that the church must have biblical leadership, a growing understanding of God’s Word, and a pursuit of godly living.
