As we move into the book of Jonah, we meet a follower of God who is running from God. Though it may sound strange, it’s not an uncommon experience for believers. After all, Jonah is running from an assignment he didn’t like. If we are honest with ourselves, there are some assignments we’ve been given through scripture that we don’t like so much. This Sunday we consider the truths, commands, and promises of God that apply to every believer, but from which many believers try to distance themselves. Each of us must ask the question of ourselves: How am I running from God?
