Sermons on 1 Kings
Are you a faith champion like Elijah – passionate for God but then confronted with the challenges of life? Familiarity as they say breeds contempt, however believers need to guard against performance and rather serve God in truth and in Spirit. Michael explores the riches of the text in 1 Kings 19:1-18 and unfolds some daily practical applications relevant to our Christian walk.
We all experience burnout at some point in our journey of life and today we look at a man who really knew what that meant. Elijah, the bible says, was a man just like you and me; so when we see how God’s grace worked for him in his burnout and disappointment, we can see how God wants to refresh and recommission you today.
Today we hear a story of two kings, the right king and the wrong king. As we follow this narrative from 1 Kings chapter 1, we reflect on who the true king is in our lives, and how the words we use are either of God’s kingdom; building us up in Him, or of another kingdom entirely.
