In our Sunday afternoon Bible study we are in 1 Kings 19, part of the story of Elijah. “In the theophany at Horeb we must listen to the Word of the Lord, the Word of God in Jesus Christ as it goes out to us, as God speaks through it and continues to speak to the works of his hands. Only then will we be truly comforted–perhaps to be shattered, but then surely to be built up again–for that Word is the comfort the Lord provides.”
