Sadly, due to technical difficulties, we have NO audio recording for the sermon today! In lieu of that, here is the outline of the message:
Jonah: A Story of God’s Persistent and Generous Mercy
THE PERSISTENT AND GENEROUS MERCY OF GOD MADE HIM NOT GIVE UP ON JONAH.
· God could have done it all alone.
· God could have given up and raised up another prophet.
THE PERSISTENT AND GENEROUS MERCY OF GOD LED HIM TO USE ALL MEANS TO BRING JONAH’S ATTENTION BACK.
· God used the storm
· God used the sailors
· God used the big fish
THE PERSISTENT AND GENEROUS MERCY OF GOD MADE HIM GIVE A SECOND CHANCE TO JONAH
· God listened to Jonah’s prayer
· God forgave Jonah

The story of Jonah and God it is a great portrait of our story with God.
· God never will give up on you because of his persistent and gracious mercy.

· God is ready to receive you and give a second chance, because of his persistent and gracious mercy.
