Pt.2 - How Deep The Father's Love
We look back on his account 3 millennia later and say, “Oh, God graciously rescued him by sending the fish to swallow him!” Sure that’s true, but you can be certain that was not the first thought that occurred to Jonah when he saw this mammoth of a sea creature swimming towards him. If he thought he was dead when the seaweeds were choking the life out of him, imagine how much more dead he thought he was when that fish started to swallow him? Jonah WAS NOT expecting to be rescued. Were it not for the compassion and grace of God, that would have been the end of his story!
