Terry Virgo on Elijah’s Despair

Elijah really was a man just like us. Despite seeming like a superman in much of the Scripture, in 1 Kings 19 we see a man who is burnt-out and yet somehow clings onto God. Regular readers of my blog will remember a fantastic sermon preached by Terry Virgo on Elijah’s prayer. It was one of the most popular things I linked to this year.

The sermon below is the next in Terry’s long-running series from when he preaches at CCK. Terry has several decades of experience of leading a growing family of churches. As a result he has encountered many people who’s experience mirrored that of Elijah when he ran into the dessert. His pastoral wisdom and unmatched ability to preach inI such a way that a biblical character leaps of the page with lessons for us today make this an unmissable sermon. I am pleased to be able to share the video here (click to the second part when the first part is done to watch the whole sermon.) Audio and other messages in the series are available at the CCK site.
