What do Gideon and Jonah have in common? Both are characters in great stories in the Old Testament. Both were used of God for a purpose and plan that He had for them. Both Gideon and Jonah were rather unlikely choices for the tasks that God asked of them. Now, what did they not have in common. Well, rather a lot.
Gideon and Jonah serve as to examples of two very different approaches to following God. Over the next 8 weeks we are going to be examining the calls and ministries of these two men and invite God to speak to us through their examples and choices.
We have decided to call this series “Thriving: More than just keeping your head above water” and we believe that God has a purpose and plan for each of our lives that includes more than merely surviving, but experiencing a thriving relationship with Him. Whether you know much about Gideon and Jonah or not, this is going to be both a fun and challenging series.
