And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17
March 3, 2019
Chaplain's Corner
PACS Families,

This past Wednesday in Chapel we wrapped up our four-part series in the Book of Jonah. As we continue to remind our students, the Book of Jonah is not about a fish, it is about the Gospel. But strangely enough, for a book that is most commonly referenced as being about a fish, it seems really odd that the last word in the book is “cattle”! Additionally, after reading through Jonah 4, it almost seems that the book is incomplete…at first glance, it just drops off. But we, of course, know that no part of the Bible is incomplete and that the feel of “dropping off” is intentional and by Divine design.

Jonah 4 reminds us of two fundamental truths: At the heart of the mission of God is God’s heart for people and God is not finished with your story. These were the areas that we explored last Wednesday, and these are the areas that you can further dive into in your family this week.

As you are together at home, in the car, or around the table, consider using the following questions within your family to help facilitate further discussions within your home about the conversations that began in our chapel service…

  • In Chapel it was stated, “If your understanding of the Gospel does not include actively reaching lost people, you not only have a misunderstanding of the Gospel…you have a misunderstanding of God.” How does this statement change the way you view the people around you that may not have a relationship with Jesus?

  • What does it mean to “Squeeze out onto others what has been poured into you?” How does this change the way you view the many ways that God has/is blessed(ing) you…and why He has/is blessed(ing) you?

  • In Jonah 4, it was very apparent that God still was not finished with Jonah’s heart…and in Chapel, we said that one of the reasons that the Book of Jonah seemingly comes to an abrupt ending is that, just like Jonah, we all need to be reminded that God is not finished with our story. How does this reminder (that God is not finished with you) challenge you if you are currently close to God? How does this reminder (that God is not finished with you) encourage you if you are currently far from God?

  • We ended Chapel with this challenge: “KEEP GROWING…each day, trust God with one new thing in your life.” What is your one thing today?
Together,
