Bible Story:

1 Kings 18:1-40

At times, we are all tempted to place our hope in things that are hopeless. Elijah dealt with the worship of false idols. He was given power by God to prove to the people that Baal was a false god and that the idols the people worshiped were not real. He trusted God and followed Him obediently, calling down fire from heaven to burn up the false gods. God is the one true God, yet our sin causes us to believe in false saviors.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
