God uses our weaknesses
Elijah is usually described as one of the great prophets, but he was heroic one minute and running away or giving up when danger threatened the next minute. It seems the change was to do with the presence or absence of the Spirit of God together with a not very adequate and less than courageous human being. This is good news for us who can also be in danger of giving up. God can use us whatever our weaknesses and fears as long as we are willing to be obedient when the time comes for action. The bible is full of confused flawed people like Elijah who got it right then got it wrong in the next second. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
