Read I Kings 18:41-43. Elijah promises rain to show King Ahab of the power of the one true God, over the other gods popular of the day. Describe the scene in these verses.
Has anyone had a conversation in the last week where you were attempting to show the power, goodness or love of the one, true God? If so, describe how you explained yourself? Do you feel like you were understood?

Discuss the mindset of the person who focuses on the results vs. the person who focuses on obedience.
