"GOD'S REQUESTS AND PROMISES"
Rev. Lon Lorton

1 Kings 17:7-16
God’s ways are not always easy to understand…sometimes we have to accept things on faith.
Can you imagine what your opinion might be of Elijah and his God?
Who do we hear when the church makes a request?
Since we know that God made us…and redeemed us…and gave us all that we have, it’s only right that God would also have first claim on all that we are and all that we have.
Alongside God’s amazing requests are His amazing promises…and the promise is always better than the request.
A tombstone can be beautifully ornate in its carvings. It can be made from the finest marble in the world. The lettering can be wonderfully exquisite. But the most impressive thing on a tombstone should be what happened during the dash.
