We haven’t covered the entirety of what the Bible has to say about Elijah. If you want to see how Elijah’s life on this earth ended you can pick it up in 1 Kings 20-22 and continue into 2 Kings through chapter 2. Also James mentions Elijah in chapter 5:17-18. The context is in regards to prayer, but the first statement stands out, it says, “Elijah was a man just like us.” That’s the bottom line from this panic series. I think Jim’s talk illuminated that truth very well this past weekend. The first two weeks of the series could have easily lulled us into a place of thinking that Elijah was some kind of superhuman guy who didn’t deal with the same things you and I do. But this weekend we saw Elijah get weary, fearful, selfish, short-sighted, depressed, despair, suicidal and angry. He hit the panic button. “Elijah was a man just like us”.
