This coming Sunday we will be finishing our "Mission" series where we have looked at Jonah and how that book is so relevant for us today. We have spent a lot of time looking at how God works on Jonah's heart, helping him realise the issues that are there. As we come to the end we realise that this is not just about Jonah or even us - this book is about God. So this Sunday we will be looking at God's Heart for God.

John Piper writes, "Just as God delights in his own glory by pouring it out in mercy for others to enjoy, so the chief end of man is not merely "to glorify God and enjoy him forever." Rather, this chief end is to double his joy in God by seeing it expanded and deepened as he pours it out in mercy for others to enjoy."
