Elijah & the God of All Generations
Series: Elijah
1 Kings 19:19-21 & 2 Kings 2:1-15 Our God is eternally active.  As He worked in past generations, so He still works in our lives today—and will continue even when we are gone.  He calls us to learn from those who have gone before us, and to do our part in training up a new generation of faithful believers. Before Elijah’s earthly ministry came to an end, God directed him to anoint the young man Elisha as the prophet to succeed him.  In Elisha’s response, we can find direction in carrying on God’s ministry.
  • Walk a little closer to those who are setting a godly example.
  • Go on a little further, building on the foundation already laid.
  • Ask for a little more of God’s power and grace in order to make a difference in this world.
Hebrews 12:1 - "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

    Elijah & the God Who Speaks
    Series: Elijah
    1 Kings 19:9-18 After the great victory on Mount Carmel, Elijah was forced to flee from the wicked and vindictive Queen Jezebel.  God sent him all the way down into the Sinai Peninsula to Mount Horeb, where God had spoken to Moses 400 years earlier.  While there, Elijah learned something about listening to the voice of God. How does God tend to speak to us today?
    • Through His “still small voice.”
    • Through a sense of inner peace.
    • Through open and closed doors.
    • Through other people.
    • Through the study of His Word.

    Elijah & the God Who Responds
    Series: Elijah
    1 Kings 18:30-39 In the days when evil King Ahab ruled the northern tribes of Israel, God called on His prophet Elijah to summon the people back to Himself.  On Mount Carmel, Elijah faced off against 850 prophets of Baal and Asherah to see whose deity would send fire to burn the sacrifice upon the altar.  Only Elijah’s God was able to respond—and in a very convincing way! Isaiah 46 illustrates the problem with idols—whether statues or anything else people honor above the One True God:
    • They must be created by people.
    • They must be sustained by people.
    • They have no power to respond to the needs of people.
    But we serve a living, loving and powerful God!
    • He is able to hear every prayer.
    • He is able to care about every need.
    • He is able to respond with wisdom and power.
    “Listen to Me...you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth.  Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you.  I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”  - Isaiah 46:3-4

    Elijah & the God Who Provides
    Series: Elijah
    Our God is sometimes known as Jehovah Jireh, the God Who Provides.  We see this truth of God’s character revealed in the life and ministry of the Prophet Elijah.  Whether we are currently experiencing abundance or need, we need to know He is our Provider, as well.
    • God is the Provider when times are easy.
    • God is the Provider when times are hard.
    • God often makes provision for us in amazing and unexpected ways.
    Why does God allow us to experience times of need and hardship?
    • God uses times of need to teach us deeper faith.
    • God uses times of need to get us where He wants us to be.
    • God uses times of need to open our eyes to unexpected blessings.
    • God helps us differentiate between need and greed.
    • God teaches us the importance of kindness and generosity to others.
    • We learn we are never as “empty” as we think we are.

    The Philippian Jailer
    Acts 16:25-34 This is the story of a transformation that took place for an unnamed jailer in Philippi and his whole family.  How did it come about?
    • There’s a Question that must be asked.
        • “What must I do to be saved?” (v.30)
    • There’s a Word that must be heard.
        • They spoke the word of the Lord to him… (v.32)
    • There’s a Truth that must be believed.
        • “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” (v.31)
    • There are Priorities that must be changed.
        • He took them and washed their wounds… (v.33)
    • When the transformation takes place, make way for JOY!
        • He was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole family! (v.34)

    The Generous Widow
    Mark 12:41-44 While sitting in the temple courts, Jesus saw a poor unnamed widow put two pennies into the offering box.  I’m sure his comments surprised the disciples, but they taught valuable lessons about Christian stewardship.
    • God takes notice of our giving.
    • He cares more about the “how” than the “what.”
    • God expects and honors sacrifice and generosity for the cause of Christ.
    • God exalts the small when it represents our best.
    • If God commented on your giving, what would He have to say?

    The Man Born Blind
    John 9 Jesus and his disciples came upon a man who had been blind from birth.  Through the physical healing Jesus offered, we are able to learn some valuable lessons about spiritual vision.
    1. Spiritual vision sees every challenge as an opportunity. (9:1-5)
    2. Spiritual vision helps us understand the importance of obedience. (9:6-7)
    3. Spiritual vision doesn’t focus on unimportant issues. (9:13-16)
    4. Spiritual vision helps us identify God’s work in our lives. (9:24-25)
    5. Spiritual vision shows us the value of pleasing God, not men. (9:28-34)
    6. Spiritual vision leads us to place our full faith in Jesus! (9:35-38)

    The Thief on The Cross
    Luke 23:39-42 The thieves crucified on either side of Jesus illustrate how every person makes decisions about their life and eternity based on their response to Jesus Christ.  Those decisions can be dramatically different.  It is of the greatest importance that we choose wisely.
    • One of the thieves chose to acknowledge his own sin.
    • He chose also to acknowledge the goodness of Jesus.
    • He then accepted Jesus as King and pleaded for His mercy. 
    • It was then that Jesus extended His amazing grace to the dying man.  The heart of the dying  criminal was changed, and his eternity was changed as well!
    How will you respond to Jesus?

    The Ethiopian Official
    Acts 8:26-39 The book of Acts records how the Lord led Philip the evangelist to a meet up with an Ethiopian official out on a lonely road.  The unnamed foreigner illustrates some wonderful characteristics of a person open to Christ’s life-changing power.
    • A Sincere Desire to Know God (8:26-28)
    • An Honest and Humble Approach to the Scriptures (8:29-35)
    • An Obedience to the Teachings of Jesus (8:36-38)
    • A New Outlook on Life (8:39)

    The Woman At The Well
    John 4
    Every encounter with Jesus is personal, purposeful and intentional.
