Here is a sermon I gave last Sunday on the book of Jonah, specifically chapter 2. Would love to hear your thoughts!
I liked how you tried to bridge both suffering experiences of those who are faithful and those who are not in relation to being in the belly of the fish. I am finding my idols as I struggle to create rest or sabbath for myself. My idols don’t want me to rest. My inability to trust God in whatever and rest in his grace, shows to myself that I am trusting myself instead of him. It is sort of like how your lent fast is revealing your idols of food and comfort.
