Our Problem is Jonah-esque


Today in America, I believe we have become more divided than other.

The root of our problem is the same as the problem that Jonah had. Despite our problems, America is a great country with even greater potential. I am blessed to be an American and proud to live in America. America has been and remains a nation of success, and successes.

Jonah was a successful prophet of God. In II Kings 14:25, Jonah’s prophecy that Israel would re-claim some of it’s territory came to pass as true. Jonah was successful, and had great potential as a prophet. But like America, Jonah had a problem. The root of problem is not wickedness.

The root of the problem is not racism.

The root of the problem is not hatred.

The root of the problem is not violence.

The root of the problem is not division.

The root of the problem is not liberalism.

The root of the problem is not greed.

The root of the problem is not hypocrisy.

The root of the problem is not intolerance or tolerance.

The root of the problem is not sexual perversion.

The root of the problem is not democrats, republicans, politics, nor the president.

The root of the problem is that we, like Jonah have a heart problem. And because we have a heart problem we have developed an attitude problem and out attitude problem leads to all of the above and more. 

Only Jesus can fix our heart problem. The problem is that because of our attitude problem most people won’t accept this truth and things will never change. 

Jesus can heal your heart change your attitude and change your actions. Turn to Jesus.
