A Royal Crisis

February 2, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 Kings

Scripture: 1 Kings 14:1–14:20

A Royal Crisis
1 Kings 14:1-20
February 2, 2020

 

Introduction:

I.    King Jeroboam's son falls sick. 1 Kings 14:1.

 

II.   Jeroboam's calculated attempt to manipulate a prophet. 1 Kings 14:2-5.

 

III.  The queen's silence.

 

IV.   The terrible doom announced by the prophet. 1 Kings 14:9-16.

 

V.    The way of David. 1 Kings 14:8.

 

Questions for reflection:

  • What can we learn from Abijah, the king's son, who pleased God but nevertheless
    died from sickness?
  • What does this teach us about sin and idolatrous worship?
  • How does the example of King David show us the way to pleasing God?
