Great Stories of the Old Testament
The term “story” sometimes connotes a fictional account. But these things really happened. They are not fiction, but rather history, and some of the greatest examples of God’s working in the lives of His people we can find.
What was Jesus doing a couple weeks before Easter… one week before Palm Sunday?
And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word (1 Kings 18:21 NKJV). There is only one God, and He does not share allegiance.
Then the LORD said, “Is it right for you to be angry?” (Jonah 4:4 NKJV) God’s love is endless, not just for “us”, but also for “them.”
When Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD (Jonah 1:3a), he learned a vital lesson we all need to remember – You cannot run from God.
