All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. How then is a loving, yet perfect, holy and just God to respond to man’s sin? The answer is at the cross, where God’s love, holiness, and justice come together to rescue and redeem mankind by grace, through faith in Jesus.
How can a good, holy, perfect, all-powerful, and all-knowing God create a world which is so broken, painful, and filled with injustice and evil? The answer lies in the freewill of man, sin, and the fall of mankind.
After Jonah’s defiance in running away from God and His call, God uses a great fish to not only save him from the sea but also to provide an opportunity for Jonah to contemplate his decisions and his call. God truly desires obedience over sacrifice and a changed life over empty words.
