Sermon Illustrations

Professors Anthony Campbell and Mark O’Brian stated something else in addition to my earlier reference. Let me add to that at this point because it provides a marvelous solution to our loss of connection with God –“the narrative portrays a sense of Elijah’s loss of nerve in conflict with Jezebel. Elijah’s encounter with God at Horeb, source of Israel’s spiritual energy, reinvigorates the prophet and reasserts God’s control over Israel’s destiny.” (Italics and bold, mine)
