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?
