How Did I End Up Here? (Jonah 4:1-4)

Pastor Sam Wells, August 13, 2017
Part of the Jonah series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

There Jonah was sitting outside the city wishing destruction on the Ninevites. However, destruction never came because the people repented and God was merciful. Jonah may have wondered how a prophet like himself could ever be wishing destruction upon fellow humans. Perhaps you have experienced this kind of anger toward others. Are you aware of how destructive this sin is? Listen this week as Pastor Sam warns us of the sin of anger and gives us the remedy.

Jonah 4:1-4

4:1 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry. And he prayed to the Lord and said, “O Lord, is not this what I said when I was yet in my country? That is why I made haste to flee to Tarshish; for I knew that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relenting from disaster. Therefore now, O Lord, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.” And the Lord said, “Do you do well to be angry?” (ESV)
