a. 1 Kings 18:21-22

b. Elijah thought he was the last of Gods people

c. Sometimes we stand together, but sometimes we must stand alone

3) A deliberate life is one lived under submission

b. We must be subject to Christ

c. True subjection is a deliberate act

4) A deliberate life is one that we prepare for

a. 2 Tim. 2:15 – 2 Tim. 4:2

b. we must be deliberate in setting apart time to prepare our lives

5) A deliberate life is a sacrificial life
