Our current teaching series at HBC is a study of Elijah. His life was so in tune with the Spirit of God, that his successor Elisha asked for a “double portion” of the Spirit just to carry on the work. Elijah’s story is amazing but we must remember that he was a “man just like us” (James 5:17). The reason that Elijah accomplished all that he did is that his life was surrendered to and dominated by the Holy Spirit of God.
The first week we studied Elijah’s arrival in the public life of Israel found in 1 Kings 17:1-6. He challenged the king of Israel…warning him of God’s coming judgment.
We see what a life dominated by the Holy Spirit looks like:
- Adventurous Direction.
- Risky Obedience.
- Supernatural Provision.
