Just When You Thought the Story Was Over…

You’re learning that – with God – things are just getting good!  

Tomorrow in worship, we get to explore two of my favorite scripture stories.  In 1 Kings 19:1-19, we find that our hero – Elijah – is ready to give up.  He thought he was being faithful, serving God zealously in a pretty dramatic fashion.  Yet, he was alone and his life was in danger. In Luke 8:26-39, instead of a hero, we have a monster.  At least, that’s how his community saw him.  They were so afraid of him, they bound him in chains.  But, he broke them and wandered among the tombs outside the community.  He, too, was alone.

Both stories looked like they were over… until God showed up.  Not only are they not alone, God has something important for them to do.  For both characters, things are just getting good.

Hope to see you tomorrow to learn more!
