Passage: Jonah 4:6-10
There are temporary blessings that we can enjoy, but we need to understand that we do not need them to be happy. In fact, they can distract us from the things that really matter. Check out how Jonah cared more about the temporary comfort of his gourd vine (which grew out the cursed ground) instead of focusing on things that have real value.

Passage: Jonah 4:5
Jonah removed himself from the place where God was working and found himself out of sync with God, out of service, out of society, out of sorts, and out of spiritual families. There is a personal application for us in this as well.

Passage: Jonah 4:4
Through this 3-D look at anger we can get more perspective on the issue of anger. We are studying Jonah 4:4 where God asks Jonah if he does well to be angry. Good question.

Passage: Jonah 3:6-9
The Word of God is not an adviser for us, it is an authority to us. We need to respond to it accordingly. The words "mine" and "my" are universal (the exception would prove the rule). These possessive words help us to see that there is an issue with the human heart--we desire to possess things as "mine", no just have things. Just as the King of Nineveh arose from his physical throne to get that which is spiritual, we must do the same.

Passage: Jonah 3:3-5
The church age is described as a mystery--something previously unrevealed, now revealed. We can see the 2000 years of the church age retrospectively in Jonah in the missing two days between Jonah's message of repentance and his sitting under his booth (as in the feast of Booths picturing the Millennium). Seeing God at work behind the scenes can encourage us to live by faith, not by fear.

Passage: Jonah 3:2
Sometimes it feels like our "get up and go" has got up and went--It can be hard to get going on the mission God has given us. After the Word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time he went and did what God told him to do. This week's teaching examines Jonah's get up and go. We can glean from his story some things we need to look at in our lives to make sure our get up and go is not hindered.
