God on the Move

We're either going with the wind or against the wind. Either way, we don't control the wind.

Jonah disobeys and goes onto a ship in the opposite direction. The result: Sailors convert. Then he obeys and preaches in Ninveh. The result: Nineveh converts. Regardless of his actions, Yahweh does His will with the Gentiles. He is determined to fulfill the Abrahamic promise, and He will do it regardless of Israel’s participation.

The question at the end of the book seems like a sermon at a missionary conference. The message is: God is on the move; the nations are being converted; are you going to sit there pouting or you going to get caught up in the wind of the Spirit?
