Scripture Struck @ Mt 11:11-15
Jesus compared John the Baptist to Elijah. In many ways he had the qualities and spirit of this old testament prophet.
Elijah was fearless. He stood against an evil King Ahab because he was swaying the people away from the Lord. All his life he was a faithful servant. He was a solitary voice of truth amidst the lies and madness of his age. He endured persecutions, pains and privations because he was a friend of God.
Elijah stood for everything that was right and truthful. Just like John the Baptist.
When we choose to say and do the right things, it is God’s spirit inspiring us!
