Profiles in Leadership
Bible Text: 1 Kings 18:1-19 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: 1 Kings, Profiles in Leadership
1. God had strategically placed a believer in the very palace of King Ahab named Obadiah. At the risk of his life, Obadiah hid 100 prophets of God and supplied them with food and water.

-God places us in the positions we are in primarily to be His representative, to use our influence, privilege to serve Him
3. Ahab called Elijah the troubler of Israel. The wicked never see their own actions as the source of their troubles, but blame God or believers instead. Those who stand for God will always be accused of causing strife/divisions. Nevertheless we must stand for God’s truth.
