How important is it to serve God with the right motives?
Chapter three of Jonah ends with God doing a great work through Jonah and in the lives of the Ninevites who repent and turn to Him. From a preachers standpoint Jonah was a success. He led a crusade that caused an entire mega city to repent from their sins and turn to God. Why not leave Jonah’s story with that great achievement? Chapter four shows that Jonah did the right things with the wrong motives. We cannot hide our motives from God. Thankfully God looks at who we are, more than what we do for Him. Those who serve God must not let sin enter their motives while serving. Jonah needed an attitude adjustment and God’s loving hand gave him one. Are your motives for serving God always pure? Have you missed the blessing of God at work due to your wrong motives? Join us tonight as we wrap up this amazing Journey of Jonah. We begin at 6:30 in the Sanctuary and would love to see you there!
