Just A Handful of Flour
This week we have a special guest speaker Dr. Sam Martin, Director of Arms for Jesus. He will be preaching from 1 Kings 17:1-16 entitled "Just A Handful of Flour."

Questions:

Please read 1 Kings 17:1-16
Ice Breaker: There is still a great need to share the Gospel in our neighbourhood and around the world.

Describe and discuss the importance of the local church in this mission.

1. List the order of events in which God works, through the first 7 verses. What do you learn about Elijah from these verses?

2. What did Elijah contribute to his own survival? How does God show His abundant provision? (vv. 1-7)  (see Exodus 16:8;12-13) What is the significance of this to your present situation?

3. What was the woman willing to do for Elijah? What can you discern about the woman, her background and her life? (vv. 10-12)

4. What does God do in response to the woman’s predicament? (vv. 13-16) Can you think of another example from Scripture where God responded similarly?

5. What can you take from this passage that can be applied to your ministry and your life today?

6. What will ignite a passion for missions in the church today?

“The joyful effects of the Gospel in our own lives gives us an enormous energy for witness.” - Timothy Keller
