Kings Lesson 17 - Throwing in the Towel

Kings Lesson 17 - Throwing in the Towel

by Stephen Davey Ref: 1 Kings 18:41–46; 19:1–19

If you could choose a character in the Bible who best teaches us how to overcome despair and suffering, who would you choose? Probably Job or the Apostle Paul, right? Those are the obvious choices. But what about Elijah? Here in the book 1 Kings 1 we find a story just as profound and didactic as Job's or Paul's. What God will teach Elijah in this story is a lesson we need as well.

From the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey

This resource is from the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey. Stephen is the son of missionary parents and was raised to love Christ and the gospel. In his last year of high school, Stephen committed his life to serve Christ vocationally wherever God chose to assign him in ministry. His first part-time opportunity was as a college student, serving one summer alongside his father, who had recently planted a church in Virginia Beach. As a part-time youth pastor, Stephen saw the Lord impact the lives of students with His timeless word.

Following graduation from Dallas in 1986, Stephen and Marsha moved with their infant twin sons to Cary, North Carolina, to plant The Shepherd's Church. From the very beginning, Stephen preached expository sermons, while Marsha created the nursery and children’s programs. In those early days, word of the new church’s commitment to Bible exposition and the doctrines of grace spread rapidly, and the fellowship was soon overflowing with attendees. In September of 2021, Stephen reached 35 years of pastoring this wonderful ministry and church family.

The full-length sermons posted here are the fruit of Stephen's preaching ministry at The Shepherd's Church.
