The Unstoppable Mercy of God (Jonah 1:7-17)

In this sermon, pastor Joel shows us the absolute sovereignty of God over all things and the futility of our attempts to outrun, outwit, or ignore him. But we not only see God’s sovereignty over nature in the story of Jonah but also unstoppable mercy. Despite Jonah’s disobedience and attempts to frustrate God’s plan, God’s mercy comes to the sinful and superstitious sailors and even to Jonah himself.
