Jonah - Obedience

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
  • Have you ever dragged your feet to obey, whether they be from a boss, a teacher, or God?

Read: Jonah 3.

  • What do you imagine Jonah’s attitude was as he finally listened to God and headed off to Nineveh?
  • When you finally obey after previously refusing and being stubborn, how do you typically feel after you obey?
  • Does the Ninevites’ reaction to Jonah’s message seem extreme to you? Why or why not?
  • What stands out to you as the most interesting part of the Ninevites’ answer to Jonah’s message?
  • What do you think would have happened if Jonah hadn’t obeyed?
  • What are some of the potential results if we do not obey God’s commands for us?
  • Jonah did not want to go to Nineveh, but when he did, the whole city was saved. We have a great opportunity to invite people and open a discussion with them with Friend Day coming up. Who has God put in your life that you can either invite or start a conversation with?

Prayer: Pray that we will obey God’s instruction, no matter what it calls us to do.
