Questions God Asks Us: What are You Doing Here? | Pastor Marg Kutz

Passage: 1 Kings 19:9-11

"Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He answered, “I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts, for the Israelites have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I alone am left, and they are seeking my life, to take it away.” He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” - 1 Kings 19:9-11

The book of James tells us the prayer of Elijah is powerful, for the prayer of the righteous can have a transformational impact on the world. Listen to this sermon for the conclusion to our "Questions God Asks Us" sermon series as we explore the call story of Elijah.
