WEEK 7- October 24, 2021
Lessons from Jonah: Sign of Jonah-Matt 12:38-41
Kinder Box: “R” Verse
Mystery Bag: Ps 56:3-4
As we studied the story of Jonah, did you notice any similarities between Jesus’ story and Jonah’s story? Read Matthew 12:38-41. Before the world began, God knew men would sin and would need a Savior. God had a plan to save the world through Jesus from the beginning, and He even reveals that plan through stories in the Old Testament. Jonah is one of the stories in the Bible that point us to Jesus. If you would have told Jonah, that the Savior of the world was going to tell people about him and how this hard thing God was asking him to do was pointing to the Messiah, he might have had a different outlook. Jonah didn’t get to know that then, and a lot of times we don’t know the big picture that God is doing in our lives. That is why God says we have to trust Him. He sees the beginning and the end, and He promises to work all of it out for good. He gives us the Bible stories so we can see that He is always faithful, so when we have trials and hard things to do, we can trust God to do what is very best. God would not have sent His son to die on the cross, if He didn’t love us enough to always do what is best for us. Now let’s look at some similarities and differences between Jonah and Jesus.
