Jonah's Sign Discussion Notes - John Drury (9/17/09)
Jesus parallel with Jonah- 3 days buried, had message to tell
Jesus greater than Jonah, Jew greater than Ninevites- still, Jews would not listen to Jesus like the people of Nineveh listened to
belly-just means somewhere inside the big fish
How did he survive 3 days w/o fresh water? Jewish time is different, standard for describing periods of time -could have been shorter
It was GOD'S FISH! How did Jonah fit in large fish? -Fish could have only had a stomach, -could have been wedged into intestine
Please join me in developing a closer relationship with God...let me know if you guys are in so we can encourage each other in this awesome challenge.
Challenge #1 - Relationship - God Speaks
Read your Bible 7 minutes a day for 7 days asking God to speak to you. Write down one thing each day you feel God is speaking to you.
Challenge #2 - Relationship - You Speak
Pray for 7 minutes a day for 7 days asking God to speak to you.
Write down one thing each day you feel God is speaking to you through prayer.
Choose one day this week to fast from something; food, sugar, coke. Make sure it is something that you will miss which in turn will remind you to pray. Repeat these steps over the next 7 weeks for a total of 49 days in a row. Be sure to keep your note pad so that you can look back over your conversations with God. These two challenges are by far the hardest to complete
because you are developing RELATIONSHIP! – Matmon Harrell
Name, School & Major What does “Going Beyond” mean to you?
Fatima Saxton-Thomas “Doing more than what’s accepted of you like school-wise, work-wise, FSU, Exercise Science and family-wise. It’s basically beyond your comfort level.” Kelsey Harrell “Doing things above the standard of yourself and of what is asked of TCC, Environmental Studies & you. For example, volunteer, work, organize, and think of other. It’s Education putting people above your wants, working harder than anyone else. It
takes motivation, drive and integrity.” Raymond Pierre-Louis “Going above and beyond the call of duty. Doing what you think is FAMU, Software Engineering, MS necessary to achieve a goal.” Kelisha N. Austin “Beyond is going past the precedent and fulfilling goals past one’s FSU, Biological Science current expectations.” Jamieus Grace “It means going the extra mile…exerting the last bit of energy.” UGA, Law Claire Pierre “Doing more than what the world has set as its standards.” FSU, Accounting & English
Yashema Mack “When a person is doing more than expected of them.” FAMU, Software Engineering, MS
If your vision suddenly became blurry, you'd probably make an appointment to see an Eye Doctor. You wouldn't automatically
assume that it had anything to do with problems in your heart! But for our spiritual eyes, the Bible says; Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8) This scripture is saying that if you've got a clean and pure heart, you will have no
problem seeing God, feeling his presence, and knowing him. You could likewise turn it around to say that if your heart is unclean, you won't see God. So if you're having trouble seeing God in your life, or his plan and will for your future-whatever it may be-check your heart! Make sure you aren't blurring your own vision with an unclean heart, attitude, and spirit.
