Sovereign Over the Deep: In the most well-known chapter of Jonah’s story, we do encounter a great fish. But is that what this story is all about? No! The point is that even in the deep, even in that dark and uncomfortable place, even as Jonah drifted down to what he thought would be his death, God was sovereign and good. The fish was only the circumstance that God used to change Jonah’s heart. Recorded on June 12, 2022, on Jonah 2, by Kyle Wagner.
This message is part of our “Sovereign to Save” sermon series from the book of Jonah in the Bible. Jonah’s story is well-known both in and outside the church for his encounter with the great fish. But Jonah is really about the incredible heart of a sovereign God to save even his enemies.
