Because the God of Christianity is the one and true God we must trust in Him over and above all things that try and compete for His place in our life.
1. The Showdown
- 1 Kings 18:27 “Call out with a loud voice, for he is a god; either he is occupied or gone aside, or is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and needs to be awakened.” Maybe your god is asleep and need to be woken up or maybe he is away and preoccupied with other pressing needs.”
- 1 Kings 18:36 “O LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and that I am Your servant and I have done all these things at Your word.
- 1 Kings 18:37 “Answer me, O LORD, answer me, that this people may know that You, O LORD, are God, and that You have turned their heart back again.”
2. What Does God Reveal About Himself?
That He Is All Powerful and Without Compare
- Matt. 6:7-8 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
- 1 Kings 18:40 Then Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal; do not let one of them escape.” So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.”
