The Repentant Pagans and the Relenting God

The Repentant Pagans and the Relenting God


We recognize that family worship has its unique challenges depending on your family’s size and stage of life. Therefore, we have prepared a complete worship service (below) for our entire church family because we are convinced that Sunday is so much more than a sermon. And this is one way for us to be worshiping the same way even though we are apart.

We suggest that you test the worship and sermon links before you gather your family. After you have done this, we encourage the leader of the house to read the prayers and appoint other readers as necessary to encourage greatest participation.

After the sermon is over, we encourage you to discuss the sermon and ways to live out its application.

The Repentant Pagans and the Relenting God
TEXT: jonah 3:1-10



As we join together in worship today, let us remind ourselves who our great God is…..

Romans 11:33  Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! 34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” 35 “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?” 36 For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen. (NIV)


“This Is Amazing Grace”

“Behold Our God”


Hebrews 1:11-14
11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.


“Before The Throne Of God Above”

“And Can It Be”


Wow Lord! No condemnation do we, your people, now dread! For all who have repented and put their faith in you, you are a permanent advocate before the Father. You are “the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us” (Romans 8:34).

We praise you Father and give thanks for every spiritual blessing you’ve bestowed upon us. Thank you for choosing us in Christ, forgiving us through Christ, adopting us through Christ, giving us an inheritance with Christ, and sealing us with your Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1).

As now as your word comes, would you “give us the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of our hearts enlightened, that we may know what is the hope to which he has called us, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might” (Ephesians 1:17-19).
