Jonah Part 3: God alone Saves.

Jonah 2:8
“Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs. But I, with a song of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. Salvation comes from the LORD.”

I am not ashamed...
God saves, everything else enslaves. Mission is about the Gospel setting people free...

Idolatry- The Sin Beneath Sin
Romans 1:21-25 - The Exchange - Creator for Creation. Truth for Lie. Glory for Junk. Exodus 20:1-2 - God is all that you need him to be, you need no other God’s.

★ Idols Condemn and Never Forgive. God forgives.
Psalm 103:2-4 Jonah 4:2 Micah 7:18 Romans 8:1-4

★ Idols Capture and Never Set Free. God Sets Free
Isaiah 61:1 & Luke 4:18 Romans 8:20-22 2 Corinthians 3:17 Galatians 5:1 Ephesians 3:12

★ Idols Make Promises and Never Fulfill. God is Faithful.
Joshua 21:45 2 Corinthians 1:20

Smash Your Idols - Wonder in God.
Read Isaiah 43 and WONDER in how good God is. How great a saviour he alone is... Read Isaiah 44:6-20 and laugh at how hopeless the wooden god is. When you are tempted by something other than God, when that thing comes to offer you hope, or security, or comfort and rest, or rescue, or life and soul... remember that it makes promises that it simply cannot keep. God alone is Who You Need Him To Be... Turn to him “always and for all”.
