Rebel Servant Sermons Shanna D. Smith What can you do to make reconciliation?Jonah was rebellious. Jonah was the Hebrew son of Amittai, who feared the Lord God of heaven, who ran from the presence of God to Tarshish, who was cast into the sea and swallowed in the belly of a great fish for three days and three nights. Jonah cried out of his affliction, and was vomited out of the belly of the great fish on dry land. Jonah went to Nineveh to preach destruction upon the wicked city; which repented. Jonah was angry unto death because of the mercy and compassion of God. Jonah had to step out from disobedience to submission. (Smith, 58)
Opposing Passion Sermons Shanna D. Smith What would you do with a second chance?Samson had a moral weakness. Samson was a Nazarite son of Manoah of Zorah, of the Danites, and his wife who was barren but birthed a miracle baby. Samson went down to Timnath, where the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, who rend a lion with his bare hands; whose carcass had bees and honey, who became wearied by Delilah; who betrayed him into the hands of the Philistines; who bound him and put out his eyes. Samson slayed one thousand Philistines and by two pillars took out more Philistines in his death than his life; who was judge of Israel for twenty years. Samson’s strength was in his long hair because he ate no unclean thing nor drank no wine by the command of God. Samson had to transform from vulnerable to powerful. (Smith, 66)

The woman with an issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and was immediately made whole; she trembled knowing in herself, she was healed of the plague, and declared her cause unto Jesus from virtue by faith in God. A woman with an issue of blood had to step out from despair to desperate. (Smith, 39)

Gideon had to transform from anxiety to warrior. (Smith, 46)
