1 Kings 18

Big idea: There is one true God and we must follow Him

I am following God when:
1) I am obeying His call (v. 1-19)

2) I understand the foolishness of my idols (v. 20-29)

3 characteristics of false gods:
a. They require a ton of work to please them
b. They push you towards self-sacrifice
c. They are ultimately powerless and unfulfilling

3) I am confident that He is at work (v. 30-46)

3 characteristics of the one true God:
a. He requires simple faith in Jesus’s work to please Him
b. Jesus self-sacrificed for you
c. He is powerful and fulfilling
