Its Just as Much for Christians as it is Non-Christians

The story of Jonah shows us that this gospel of the cross – the good news that God relentlessly pursues sinners in order to rescue them – is just as much for Christians as it is for non-Christians.  Jonah’s life proves this, because Jonah, who knows God, obviously needs divine deliverance as much as anyone else in the story.  In fact, his need for rescue gets far more emphasis than anyone else’s.
