The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, February 23. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
Elijah and the Prophets of Baal
Read: 1 Kings 17:1; 18:17–46
Ask your child:
- Why did Elijah call the Israelites and priests of Baal to Mount Carmel? Elijah challenged the priests of Baal to a contest that would to reveal which god was truly God.
- How was God glorified through the events on Mount Carmel? Baal was proven to be a false god, while the Lord was shown to be the only true God. Idolatry was judged and the Lord exalted.
Emphasize this principle: The Lord is the only true God. Therefore, we should worship him alone.
- Demonstrate God’s supremacy by worshiping Him alone.
- Tell others that the Lord is the only true God.
Praise: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”
Prepare for next week: 2 Kings 21-25
Memorize for Feb 9-Mar 8: “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)*
