Cover To Cover Bible Study: Elijah
In 1 Kings 15:25-16:34 we find summarised the reign of six of Israel's kings. Each disregarded God and His laws, and the vast majority of the people followed their evil example. By far the worst was the last, Ahab, who gave the people official sanction to worship both God and the weather and fertility god, Baal. Into this situation God sent His prophet Elijah in order to radically change the nation's view of false gods and to urge them to worship only the true God. We may wish we had men and women as gifted as Elijah today, to challenge society's increasingly hostile and sometimes indifferent attitude to God and His Word. Yet Elijah was a man `just like us', and his life can teach us much about what God can achieve through an ordinary person who desires and is determined to serve Him.
