July 14, 2019 | Kyle Brenon | Jonah 4:1-4
For the past four weeks we have been looking at the book of Jonah in order to better understand God’s heart for those who are lost. This week we conclude our series by getting a very telling look into the heart of the reluctant prophet. After Jonah finally obeys the LORD by speaking out against Nineveh’s sin, the entire city repents of their evil ways and turns to worship God.
Seeing that this is certainly pleasing to the LORD and has brought Him tremendous glory, we would be right to think that a prophet of God would be excited to see this happen. However, we see in Jonah chapter four that this is not the case. The bitterness in Jonah’s heart has grown deep, and in many ways, it has blinded him to God’s ultimate plan as well as his own ultimate calling.
Have we unknowingly allowed these same roots to grow in our own hearts? Are we willing to ask ourselves what we desire more? That God's enemies are brought to judgement or that they would be miraculously saved (like we were), so that the Lord is glorified in their lives?
Since starting in a Manassas home in 1979, CrossWay's casual, friendly culture and contemporary worship style have encouraged people to live out their faith in every aspect of life. People are challenged in practical ways to enter into and renew their relationship and devotion to Jesus Christ. Whether you are exploring Christianity or have been part of God's family for many years, our goal is to be an active part of your spiritual journey.
We are an Evangelical Free Church belonging to an association of over 1,400 interdependent churches united to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. We are committed to working with each other as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission which Christ entrusted to His Church. CrossWay's congregational form of church government allows its members, Elder Board and pastoral staff to work together to determine the strategies, ministries, staffing, and facilities needed to fulfill our purpose.
We're sorry to say, Saturday's Church Picnic has been cancelled due to a Heat Advisory.
We still have access to the pavilion we rented, so if you want to go hang out anyway, feel free—just be sure to bring plenty of water!
