Man Overboard

Whenever we feel we have a better plan than God, we set ourselves up for disaster. Sadly, many Christians fall into this trap, assuming that God will act on behalf of the “right people” and against the “wrong” ones. In this series, Alistair Begg dives into the story of Jonah, the Old Testament prophet who did not want to preach. Jonah was convinced that the Ninevites did not deserve his preaching or the chance to repent. He thought he had a better grasp of who deserved grace and who did not than God Himself. What he did not understand, though, was that running from God is impossible, since He is completely sovereign in all things. In fact, God exercises His sovereignty not to exclude, but to draw all people into His grace. It is not about who “deserves” it and who doesn’t. If it was, it wouldn’t be grace!
