This week’s episode: Embrace Your Purpose
In the finale of this Jonah series, we learn that our passion for God is meant to inspire us to embrace God’s purpose to show others compassion. Are you willing to relinquish your traditions and opinions to make God accessible to anyone searching? This is what it means to be compelled by compassion. Compassion is the emotion inside of us that makes us okay with being unselfish, and with saying, “this is bigger than me.”
This week’s episode is the finale of our series on the book of Jonah. If you’ve been watching our Sunday live stream service, you know we’ve been covering the story of Jonah for the past couple weeks. His story of being called to do something that seems impossible is a great “roadmap to happiness” for us as we come out of the pandemic.
Here are some resources to help you dive deeper into what the scriptures say on this topic.
Read the book of Mark to learn from the life of Jesus how to embrace your purpose of showing others compassion.
Read How to Be Selfless: An In-Depth Guide for Selfish People for practical tips on how to grow in your compassion and love.
