Surrendering the Lead: March 27, 2011

Scripture – Jonah 1:1-3 (NIV)
1 The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”

3 But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.

Reflections on today’s sermon:

  • What is our biggest fear when God takes over as the leader of our lives?
  • What is our common response when God asks us to do something we don’t want to do?
  • How can we encourage ourselves to be more ready and willing to obey when God calls? How can we encourage others to do the same as well?
