“How long will you go limping with two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him!” (1 Kings 18:21)
During our stay on Mount Carmel, we seized the opportunity to set things straight right out of the gate!
During the celebration of our first Mass, we took stock of the ‘modern day idols’ we each serve on any given day and thanks to the inspired words and actions of the prophet Elijah, we laid them to rest right next to the false prophets in the Cichon/Kishon Brook.
“… and he slit their throats.” (1 Kings 18:40)
To encounter the Spirit of He who revealed His presence to Elijah by means of a “small still breeze,” (1 Kings 19:12) we must be rid of all false gods at work in our lives.
