Our message title is taken from James 5:17,18 regarding Elijah, a prophet of God who lived in some very challenging times. Though we read about him in I Kings 19 that “(he) was afraid and ran for his life.”; we will look at some events in his life that show an example of a man of great faith JUST LIKE US! Right?? Carrying out John 14:12; right??
Since James, undoubtedly the brother of Jesus and a leader of the church in Jerusalem wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that: “Elijah was a man just like us. . . ” (James 5:17 NIV), I would like to take a look at US, by taking just an overview of the life and times of the prophet, Elijah in the message today.
