Fight! Fight! All of us love a good fight and there isn’t a better one between Elijah and the prophets of Baal. Even though this fight may seem like it is between Yahweh and Baal, there is a more important fight that is taking place. Listen to find out as Pastor Andrew preaches from 1 Kings 18:20–40.
1. An idol is a good thing that becomes a bad thing because you have made it an ultimate thing. What are some “good things” in your life that can potentially become an idol?
2. If idols cannot answer us, then why do we still trust in them? Why do people still trust in idols even if they know they have no power to deliver on what it promises? What makes idols so tempting for you?
3. Only Yahweh can answer us. We may have not seen a fireball from heaven, but we have seen God come from heaven to die for us on the cross. Why do we so quickly turn back to idols, like Israel, after witnessing God’s power and grace? What are some ways we can fight idols in our lives in light of what Christ has done for us on the cross?
