Learning through experience definitely makes an impression, but isn’t it better sometimes to learn from the successes and failures of others? Scripture tells us that those who came before us are examples for us (1 Cor. 10:6 and 11), given that we could learn what to do—and what not to do. Few offer us the lessons that Elijah does.
Looking for God’s provision? Elijah dealt with that. Trying to believe God when everything in the natural is against you? Elijah dealt with that too. Battling with self-pity? Elijah faced that as well. Elijah’s ministry wasn’t very long, but it was packed full of life lessons that we can use today.
You may not think an Old Testament prophet has anything to teach you, but you’ll want to think again—a man translated to heaven by a whirlwind must have something to share. Explore the right—and wrong—ways to serve God, and learn more about how God honors His servants. This study guide offers the life experience without the hard knocks!
Whether you are teaching a Sunday school class, leading a small group, discipling an individual, or studying Andrew’s book, Lessons from Elijah, on your own, this Study Guide is designed for you! Each study is made up of a Lesson, a Lesson Outline, a Teacher’s Guide, Discipleship Questions, an Answer Key, and Scriptures.
Included inside the front cover is a CD-ROM. It contains the Lesson Outlines, Discipleship Questions, and the Scriptures used within the lessons. You may reproduce as many copies of these three as you need to facilitate teaching to others. The other materials are designed primarily for the teacher.
