Take a Tour

Elijah

Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more

Only you can make up your mind to follow the one true God.

Key Points:

  • Elijah was a prophet of God at a time when false prophets were really popular.
  • Elijah challenged the false prophets to a contest to see whose God was real. 1 Kings 18:22-24
  • Elijah won the contest proving who the real God is. 1 Kings 18:26,37-39
  • Only you can make up your mind to follow the one true God.

Memory Verse:

1 Kings 18:21 “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him!”

Talk About It
  1. What’s your favorite part of the video? What’s one thing you learned from it?
  2. Share a time you had a hard time making a decision about something. Why was it hard to decide?
  3. What prophet did we learn about today? What was a prophet’s job?
  4. What crazy thing did Elijah do to prove God was the real God?
  5. Read Proverbs 3:5-8. Why shouldn’t we trust our abilities over God? What happens when we listen to God?
  6. How will you apply this lesson to your life this week?
