In this talk, Dan walked us through the story of Elijah when he challenged the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18-19. Elijah showed both great courage in the Lord and in trusting the Lord to show Himself when he challenged the prophets of Baal, but he also showed great fear in running from Queen Jezebel when he saw that God's mighty miracle did not cause the whole nation to repent. Dan drew out a number of comforts from the story: 1. God is more committed to His glory than we are. 2. God will break your arm to show you more of Himself. 3. All things work together for your good if you are in Christ and called according to His purposes.

Conclusion: Take "risks"! Our God is Yahweh, so jump into the story.
