Confronted by the Word

August 9, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 & 2 Kings

Scripture: 1 Kings 22:51–22:53, 2 Kings 1:1–1:18

Confronted by the Word
1 Kings 22:51 – 2 Kings 1:18
Pastor Rich Lanning

 

Introduction:

I.   Ahaziah seeks sguidance from Baal-zebub of Ekron. 1 Kings 22:51 - 2 Kings 1:2.

 

 

 

II.   The consequences of despising God by despising His Word. 2 Kings 1:3-12, 16-17.

 

 

 

III.  The 3rd captain honors God by honoring His Word. 2 Kings 1:13-15.

 

 

Questions for reflection:

  • In crisis, Ahaziah instinctively turned to an idol. Are there ways that we do the same?

 

  • In this passage, how is God different from the idols that Ahaziah trusts in?

 

  • How might we, like the 3rd Captain, honor God by honoring His Word?
