Introduction to the Days of Elijah
Updated: Sep 13, 2020
Sermon from Pastor Sam Medeiros | Worship leader: Lee Janzen
Passage: 1 Kings 17:1
Today we will start a new Sermon Series entitled “Days of Elijah”. We want to study about (1) Elijah’s life and (2) the difficult days that he lived in. And today’s message will be more an introduction to the theme (Elijah’s life and days). So… we will just lay foundations for the next sermons.
But you may be thinking... Why to study about Elijah? What interesting and useful things we can learn with Elijah? Elijah is a powerful example to us of a man of faith, He had a powerful spirit-filled life. He was one of the greatest prophets in the Old Testament.
The New Testament indicates also how similar Elijah was to us. James 5:17 says, “Elijah was a man just like us.” He had emotions like us. He had ups and downs like us. He got emotionally drained, discouraged, depressed. He was like us in more ways than you might think. At the same time, Elijah was used powerfully by God. Therefore, his story speaks to those who desire to live a life that counts spiritually.
