Get a bigger God! (Jonah 2v8-9)

I had the honour of preaching at the first ECU Central meeting of term last night. What do you say at the start of a new term? They're doing a three part series on defeater beliefs and key issues that might keep them from living and speaking for Jesus. My issue was embarrassment of exclusive claims - and it seemed like a decent idea at the time to do that from Jonah through the lense of The God of Grace vs. Idols. That plays out in a call todie to idols and rise to live in Christ, unembarressed by the exclusive claims of Christ (which are reasonable and sensible) and delighted by the gospel, gaining a bigger vision of God, from Jonah 2v8-9.
