Swallowed by Grace (Week 4): “The Pouting Prophet”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Jonah 4:1-11

Pastor Jason Mayhall leads the conclusion of the sermon series entitled “Swallowed by Grace,” to Redemption Bible Church. Pastor Jason teaches about God’s character and mission in the world, specifically how one cannot commit more sin than God’s grace may forgive. This is something shown in the story of Jonah, by God’s actions toward the city of Nineveh. We hear Jonah’s reaction to God’s actions and how a Christian should measure themselves against God’s standard and repent for sins, rather than seeking our own empty desires. The video “I’m Christian, but I’m Not…” was used to make this point further.

Swallowed by Grace (Week 3): “The Preaching Prophet”

Jerrod Helms – Jonah 3:1-10

Redemption Bible Church follows the story of Jonah, as part of our sermon series entitled “Swallowed by Grace.” Jerrod Helms talks about how God accomplishes his plan, regardless of what we do as people. In Jonah 3, we see whether Jonah has learned this lesson as God gives him a second chance, instructing him to preach in the city of Nineveh. Do you know who you are and who you represent?

Swallowed by Grace (Week 2): “The Praying Prophet”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Jonah 1:17-2:10

Redemption Bible Church follows the story of Jonah, in our current sermon series entitled “Swallowed by Grace,” led by Pastor Jason Mayhall. Jonah, having rejected God’s instructions, finds himself in dire straits until the Lord shows him grace. Jonah realizes he was saved in spite of what he chose to do, as God enabled Jonah to see his situation more clearly. Pastor Jason talks about how we all need an intervention, to be shown a better way, as sin separates us from the presence of God. God can graciously spare us, like He did Jonah, extending salvation to us even when we selfishly spurn him.

Swallowed by Grace (Week 1): “The Prodigal Prophet”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Jonah 1:1-16

Pastor Jason Mayhall leads Redemption Bible Church in the first part of the story of Jonah. This is a new sermon series entitled “Swallowed by Grace.” Jonah was a prophet, famous for helping Israel at an earlier time in his life. At the beginning of this story, Jonah was asked to bring a message to the city Nineveh, part of the Assyrian empire. Initially, Jonah runs away from God’s request, taking passage on a ship traveling away from Assyria. Through this example, Pastor Jason talks about how the story of Jonah is really the story of all of us. We all may be running from God in one area of our lives, and we are encouraged to look at our lives and ask ourselves what might we be running from?
