Edging God Out – Sidebar

 And he said to them, “I am a Hebrew, and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.” (Jonah 1:9 ESV)

This is one of the most awkward verses in the book of Jonah. a vivid example of how sometimes our talk really doesn’t match our walk. Jonah is claiming to be a God fearing person at the same time living in rebellion.

I know the sailors were going awhhh, Mr., this is weird – why are you running from Him?

    I would like to add another thought to this sidebar post. Here it is:
    It is amazing to me how God can still bring unbelievers to genuine faith despite our personal failures as believers. I know one can argue the opposite, but in this case (Jonah 1:14-16), these sailors were able not only to pray to the God of a rebellious prophet, but also make vows to him. This should humble us big time!
