Discouraged and Despairing

June 14, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 & 2 Kings

Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1–19:8

Discouraged and Despairing
1 Kings 19:1-8
June 14, 2020


I. Jezebel remains unpersuaded. 1 Kings 19:1-2





II. Elijah is discouraged and despairing the cause. 1 Kings 19:3-4





III. God ministers to Elijah. 1 Kings 19:5-8





Questions for reflection:

  • Why is education and compelling evidence insufficient in persuading many of the truth of the Gospel? What are the implications of this for evangelism?

  • John Stott remarked, "The occupational hazard of Christian discipleship and ministry is discouragement." Do you agree with him?  Has this been an issue for you?
  • How did God encourage and restore Elijah? What about this might be an encouragement to you?
