Why We Run (2)

When we run from God, it reveals something about us. It is an outward indication that something is wrong inside. What was Jonah running from? What was he afraid of? Success! And I don’t mean an external type of “I made it” image. I’m talking about success in what matters most – soul success. He knew that God’s salvation would override the sin of the city, and instead of embracing the inevitable spiritual success of others, he sabotaged it by running. What a shame that when God needed a missionary, Jonah went AWOL and was more like a “missing-ary.”
