Jonah Series (pt.5): "Looking Back on Jonah" (Luke 11.29-32)

Sunday I preached "part five of my four part series on Jonah." Yes, I have an odd sense of humor. A couple of people in the congregation caught the jocularity of my statement. Maybe some who read this post will miss it until they go back. That is understandable.

Anyway, the ministry continues to be a major blessing. The Lord has been so good to me and my family. I have grown through this ministry experience. My heart has changed as well. More importantly, I notice a change in most of the people at the ministry. Obviously, I am more concerned with the growth of the people we are ministering to.

I am not putting in the sermon outline because I am hand writing my notes at this point. If anyone really wants the sermon outline, just email me and I will type them up. Otherwise, I will just offer this streaming or downloadable sermon.

Finally, I posted on Facebook (to be my FB friend look me up at facebook.com/pregador27) yesterday:
I am tired physically, but God is refreshing me this morning. Beginning a new message series at Emmanuel Ministries and "If I say, 'I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,' there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot." (Jeremiah 20.9 ESV)

Yes!!! Jeremiah's context was almost a frustration meeting a determination, mine is an excitement and a heart filled with gratitude. I am so thankful for the opportunity to minister at Emmanuel Ministries.

Sunday, I plan to preach on Philippians 1.1-2. It is developing nicely thus far. I am being personally enriched as I study. God is awesome!
