One day God came to Jonah with an assignment that would rather do anything than accept.  And as silly as it sounds, he tried to run away from God.  Jonah’s story is so strange it sounds almost like a fairy tale, but the problem he faced is all too familiar, and so is his solution.  If you’ve chosen to follow Christ, you’ve received an assignment to tell others about Him.  And you may not be any more comfortable about the message or the people that God has sent you to than Jonah was.  Where is your Ninevah and have you been looking for escape routes in the other direction?
