Jonah 2:1-10

Fill-In Notes:

  1. Was there ever a time in your life (or someone you love) where you hit “rock bottom”, a dark place or felt desperate? — if so how did God get your (their) attention? 
  2. When you think of a dark time when you were desperately struggling, were you slow to repent of your self reliance and turn your life choices back over to God? If so, why so slow? 
  3. Which of these “true & better” resonates with you most? 

a. Jonah was thrown into sea as a result of his own disobedience, but Jesus willingly went to cross for our disobedience. 

b. Jonah spent three days in belly of fish, emerging to continue God’s mission but Jesus spent three days in tomb, rising to bring us eternal life & fulfill God’s ultimate mission of salvation. 

c. Jonah’s deliverance points to God’s grace & mercy, but Jesus’ resurrection secures it for all who believe.
