Dear Mosaic Family, As we continue our "Heroes" sermon series tomorrow, we'll be looking at the life and exploits of the epic mega-prophet Elijah. Everything Elijah did, he did big. He stands up to tyrants, stops rain for three years, ravens bring him food, resurrects people (NBD), and wins a showdown against the prophets of the idol Baal by calling fire from heaven. If that's not enough, he was an insane athlete! He ran seventeen miles faster than horses and chariots (#beastmode). His whole life, he was driven by one mission: to help indecisive people commit to the one True God. Tomorrow, we'll be focusing our attention on Elijah's showdown with the the false-god Baal. As Elijah gathers thousands of people together, he tells them in 1 Kings 18:21: "'How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.' And the people did not answer him a word."
Ours is the most commitment-challenged culture in the existence of the world. Perhaps we don't worship Baal, but we do worship the "god of open options." We sacrifice the substance of commitment at the alter of superficial choice. Elijah's words are as relevant as ever.
Be sure to join us tomorrow as we learn from the life of the great hero of the faith, Elijah, and see how his life foreshadows the Ultimate Superhero, Jesus Christ. Take 20 minutes today to read through 1 Kings 17-19 in preparation for our time together in God's Word.
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
