JOSHUA’S NOTE – THE COURAGE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND (ELIJAH)
There are lots of neat Christian guys, but few godly men. – Matt Chandler.
The average church member might like a sermon on Elijah, but they would change churches if Elijah was called to be their pastor.
The tide will turn when we decide enough is enough.
Elijah is known, not for any books he wrote, but for the deeds he did.

Irrespective of your age, you aren’t a man, until you take responsibility and live in accountability.
If you spent as much time on your hobbies as you do on your walk with God, how good would you be at your hobbies?
If you spent as much time on your walk with God as you do on your hobbies, what kind of man would you be?
When wickedness develops into extraordinary proportions, God meets it with extraordinary measures. – J. Sidlow Baxter.
Elijah was a man who was always passionate about something. – Alexander Whyte.
If you are sure it is a right thing for which you are asking, plead now, plead at noon, plead at night, plead on. With cries and tears, spread out your case. Order your arguments. Back up your pleas with reasons. – C. H. Spurgeon.
Once you’ve prayed and have a word from God, stand on it.
We worship at the altar of political correctness and nonoffensive preaching. We have little appetite for the meat of the word and a call to the cross.
You can’t impact your generation if you aren’t willing to have a showdown and live with the consequences.
Courage is the tenacity to bring about change; determination is the persistence to continue to see that change through to the end.
