Showdown at the O.K. Carmel, Part 1

May 17, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 & 2 Kings

Scripture: 1 Kings 18:19–18:29

Showdown at the O.K. Carmel, Part 1
1 Kings 18:19-29
May 17, 2020



I.    Stop riding the fence. 1 Kings 18:21.

II.    Elijah presents his challenge. 1 Kings 18:22-25.

III.   Baal fails! 1 Kings 18:26-29.




Questions for reflection:

  •      Why do you think Baal worship was so powerfully seductive to 
         the Israelites? Are there parallels for us and our idols today?

  •      Do you think there are ways that Christians today are overly active,
         (like the priests of Baal), thinking they have to always be busy to get
         God's attention?

  •      What do you think the author  is wanting us to learn from this?
