The Western Cape Hub (South Africa) hosted a Summer Camp for teenagers in Hermanus from 9- 12 January 2020.
Session 4 by Stephen Van Rhyn (Jubilee Community Church, Cape Town)
Shockingly, Jonah delivers his 5 word sermon of impending destruction but does not tell the Ninevites that God will relent if they repent! When they repent, and God relents, Jonah is outraged,
Jonah had a personal experience of God's grace in his own life, but he had not let the Gospel sink deep into his heart. Though a beneficiary of God's grace already, he can't stand to see his enemies as recipients of the very same grace.
The real theme of this book is revealed in the final session: Our great God's great concern, for the great city of Nineveh.
Will we model Jonah or Jesus' willingness to see the goodness of God come to all people?
