Excellent day at Lakes Church today!
This weekend Pastor Tom Bremer from Teen Challenge Europe visited us. He brought a short insight into what Teen Challenge is – they go out into the streets and look for drug addicts to help change their lives, give them hope and bring them to Christ. Amazing, amazing stuff. If you want to learn more – or learn about how you can pray for them, check out their website: http://www.teenchallenge.info/html/home.html.
Then Pastor Tom spoke briefly about Jonah. When we typically think about Jonah, we think about how he was swallowed by a whale and God saved him and made the whale spit him back out. But it was after this ordeal, after the town of Nineveh had been saved, that today’s message brought us to. Chapter 4 of the book of Jonah we find Jonah angry with God. Angry for saving a town that had long been tormenting Jonah’s people. And God said to him, “Do you have a right to be angry?”
Pastor Tom’s point is that, God created the storm, God created the whale, God created the circumstances, God created the good that has come out of those circumstances too. He has a plan, He knows what He is doing. God will get you through it.
