God's Exposing Wind (Jonah 1:4-6)

“The dismaying news is the every act of disobedience to God has a storm attached to it…The Bible does not say that every difficulty is the result of sin—but it does teach that every sin will bring you into difficulty.”

—Timothy Keller, The Prodigal Prophet

Jonah 1:4-6

Setting the Stage (Jonah 1:1-3)

“At odds with God, Jonah typifies those who see the divine attributes of justice and mercy as functioning for their own convenience; mercy for themselves, but justice for their enemies. Fortunately, however, these attributes are not directed by human motives or desires. As the book of Jonah makes plainly obvious, God is sovereign, his justice is totally impartial, and his mercy may extend to anyone.”

—Desmond Alexander
