An Eternal Perspective: Elijah, Elisha And The Brevity of Life

November 15, 2015 Speaker: Clint Humfrey Series: 1 Kings

Topic: Sermon

Why did godly people in the past walk among graveyards? Was it because they were looking for Zombies? No. It was because they wanted to remind themselves of the brevity of life. Modern people don’t like to think about death. But Elijah had to deal with it. He wasn't going to be a prophet forever. And even Jezebel outlived him. Such a situation reminds us that in God’s purposes, he takes the long view. Do you need to recapture an eternal perspective?
