On The Run

2 August 2020 - David Archer

On The Run

The message of Jonah is simple: God who is rich in love, has a passion for reaching the unreached that’s way more intense than ours! He has a commitment to evangelism that far exceeds our own, seeking to reach out to those who live in ignorance of His love and grace! And He’s committed to doing so through His people, even when they let Him down badly! Week 1: "On The Run" Jonah 1.1-3 There is something in each of us, which like Jonah, left unchecked will prevent us realising our potential or cause us to evade our destiny!
