Below are some questions to help you reflect on the sermon:



1.   What do you think is important about the story of Jonah in the Bible? 


2.  Read Jonah 1. What does God ask Jonah to do? What does he actually do?   


3.  As Jonah runs from God, describe what negative effect that has on other people? 


4. Describe a time you’ve gone an opposite direction of God in your life? What were the results? 


5. How is Jonah ultimately rescued? Read Matthew 12:39-41. How does Jesus rescue us in a similar way?
