Bible reading for today: 1 Kings 16:29–34, 1 Kings 17, 1 Kings 18
Hey folks! We’re starting our series on the prophet Elijah’s life today. Elijah lived in a time where Israel was tyrannized by the wicked King Ahab and his wife Jezebel, who worshiped the god Baal (1 Kings 16:30–32). But watch the video to see how God majestically showed Himself to be the one true God (check out 1 Kings 18:20–40 for the full story).
As God listened to Elijah’s cries back then and showed up, He hears you today and is your very present help in time of need.
While God’s fire, which Elijah called down, completely burnt up the animal sacrifice AND the altar, Jesus is still alive today. He rose again after sacrificing Himself to bear all the judgment for our sins through His death on the cross, and He’s the reason why you can live as God’s fully forgiven, fully loved child today, and His love makes you an overcomer in life.
