Elija The Tishbite

1 month ago

Pastor Herb explores the profound story of Elijah the Tishbite, as recounted in 1 Kings 17:1-6. This sermon explores the unexpected call of Elijah, a man of ordinary background with extraordinary faith, and his confrontational message to Ahab, a king led astray by the worship of Baal and Asherah.

Pastor Herb illuminates the scripture, emphasizing that God's call does not depend on our qualifications but on our willingness to obey. With vivid details, he narrates how Elijah, guided by the word of the Lord, relies on ravens for sustenance by the brook Cherith, demonstrating that obedience to God's command always brings blessing, even in the most unlikely circumstances.

This sermon is a powerful reminder that God can use anyone to fulfill His purposes, encouraging us to trust and obey, even when faced with tasks that seem beyond our capabilities. Pastor Herb challenges us to consider our own response to God's calling, urging us to faithfulness and courage in the face of adversity.

As we reflect on Elijah's journey from obscurity to becoming a mouthpiece for God's judgment and provision, Pastor Herb reassures us that, like Elijah, we too can trust in God's provision and guidance, even when our "brooks" dry up. This message is a call to action for all believers to stand firm in their faith, ready to speak God's truth, and to remember that obedience always brings God's blessing.

Whether you are feeling unqualified, hesitant, or ready to take the next step in faith, this sermon is for you. We learn together how to walk in obedience and be a light in the darkness, trusting that God will always qualify the called.
