QT 1 Kings 19-1-10

May 17, 2015

In today’s QT, Elijah is afraid for his life by Jezebel’s wrath after hearing what Elijah did. It’s interesting he’s afraid because he just witnessed God’s fireball coming down on his alter and proving everyone of God’s glory. I suppose this goes to show even the great Elijah is not that different than other people. And I suppose it goes to glorify the LORD as it really shows it was God who did, does, and will do.

Long time ago, my faith was shaken when I realized just how much people fail at life in various different ways. I was troubled because I felt if you can’t do all the way, what’s the point? When I told my pastor this, he said everyone can only do as much as their faith allows them. This is a sad answer because everyone’s faith is so weak. But the good news is that it’s not about what we do. It’s about what HE did to save us purely out of grace. What we do after that point is merely a show of appreciation of that ultimate gift HE gave us.
