Three Days in the Belly of a Whale

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into this world, and through sin death: and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

The message of Christianity is one of God’s love for humanity. Sometimes though, the Christian faith gets painted as if it is for certain types of people who haven’t done certain types of things. The story ofJonah emphatically declares that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, God cares about you. Through a disobedient follower, a group of idolatrous fisherman, and a pagan city, this series of sermons proclaims that everyone can be engulfed by grace.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8–9

God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. And he said Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and dominion over the fishes of the sea and over the birds of the air and the beasts of the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
