Christianity is the only religion or a worldview which teaches us that people who take refuge in Christ, people who believe that He is the only Savior of their lives, will overcome death and sin. These are two of the most powerful evils in our life which are inescapable, they’re very part of our existence. But God promises that He will deliver His people on the last day when Christ returns. In this passage, we learn that Christians will have victory over death and sin when Christ returns to take them home (heaven), but we also learn what Christians are required to do until that day comes.
The God of the bible is not just sovereign over Israel but over all the earth. Each incident in the book of Jonah sheds light on God’s sovereignty over man’s disobedience. It is really a book about God, and how one man came, through painful experience, to discover the true character of God.
