Wrestling with the Gospel

Today we consider the Old Testament prophet Jonah and how he wrestled with bringing the Gospel to a people he considered unworthy of God’s favor.  We see how the consequence of his disobedience not only affected him but also unbelievers in his midst.  It is also Pentecost when we celebrate the sending of the Holy Spirit to Jesus’ disciples who were then empowered to take this Gospel to every tribe and nation around the world.
