BIBLE TRUTH: Elijah defends his prophecy of the drought to the wicked king, Ahab.
MEMORY VERSE: “And [Elijah] answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim” (1 Kings 18:18, KJV).
LESSON AIM: By the end of this lesson, we will COMPARE Elijah’s response to speak to Ahab to that of Obadiah’s response to report back to Ahab, GAIN a sense of Obadiah’s concerns when reporting Elijah’s message to Ahab, and ACT in boldness when speaking the Word of God.
