During October the prime emphasis of ministry in the church has been upon “The Heart of a Servant” Last Sunday the assembly was exhorted to really take hold of the command Jesus gave to his disciples in Matthew.28:18-20, “GO NOW INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND MAKE DISCIPLES————” THE TIME HAS ARRIVED WHEN THE CHURCH, THAT IS THE MEMBERS NEED TO SHOW THEMSELVES TO THE UNSAVED!
1.Kings.18:1. Now it came to pass after many days that the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “GO, SHOW YOURSELF UNTO AHAB, AND I WILL SEND RAIN UPON THE EARTH”
Israel had been experiencing severe drought and famine for the previous three and a half years, Luke.4:25, James.5:17. God in His sovereignty had brought this upon them due to the fallen spiritual condition of the nation who through the bad influence of Jezebel, king Ahab’s wicked foreign wife, and his weak leadership had turned away from the Lord to follow other gods and idols.
Now God issues instructions to His servant, the Prophet Elijah, it is time to bring the nation back to Himself, through repentance.
ELIJAH! “GO SHOW YOURSELF” this is what you have been prepared and saved for.
Church! Now it is time to literally “SHOW OURSELVES” to the many lost, troubled souls living all around us. We have an example to follow Jesus, who in His ministry revels there are many ways to lead someone to faith in Him.
