One True God
1 Kings 18:17-22 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, "Is it you, you troubler of Israel?"...
After being in hiding for three years, Elijah and Ahab once again meet face to face. Right off Ahab blames Elijah for the complete drought that has ravaged the country. Elijah stands his ground and immediately points out the real problem--that Ahab and the people had fallen away from God and were following Baal and Asherah. When we reach verses 20-21, Elijah calls out the people of Israel and challenges them to fully follow God. "If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him."
How would you describe fully following God? How do you guard against letting other gods (money, popularity, position, possessions) pull your eyes off God? Tami
