1 Kings 19:1-21
1 And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and also how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time." 3 And when he saw that, he arose and went for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.
4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, O LORD, take away my life, for I am not better than my fathers." 5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him and said unto him, "Arise and eat." 6 And he looked, and behold, there was a cake baked on the coals and a cruse of water at his head. And he ate and drank, and lay down again. 7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him and said, "Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for thee." 8 And he arose, and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
9 And he came thither unto a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said unto him, "What doest thou here, Elijah?" 10 And he said, "I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Thy covenant, thrown down Thine altars, and slain Thy prophets with the sword. And I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away." 11 And He said, "Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. 13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice unto him and said, "What doest thou here, Elijah?" 14 And he said, "I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts, because the children of Israel have forsaken Thy covenant, thrown down Thine altars, and slain Thy prophets with the sword. And I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away." 15 And the LORD said unto him, "Go, return on thy way to the Wilderness of Damascus. And when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria; 16 and Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy stead. 17 And it shall come to pass that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay; and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. 18 Yet I have left Me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him."
19 So he departed from thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth; and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, "Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee." And he said unto him, "Go back again, for what have I done to thee?" 21 And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slew them and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they ate. Then he arose and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.
Galatians 5:1, 13-18
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion of the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye not be consumed one by another.
16 This I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other, so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Words of Worship - 1 Samuel 3:9b, John 6:68c
51 And it came to pass, when the time had come that He should be received up, He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set as though He would go to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said,"Lord, wilt Thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did?" 55 But He turned and rebuked them and said,
And they went to another village. 57 And it came to pass that, as they went along the way, a certain man said unto Him, "Lord, I will follow Thee whithersoever Thou goest." 58 And Jesus said unto him,
59 And He said unto another,
But he said, "Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father." 60 Jesus said unto him,
61 And another also said, "Lord, I will follow Thee, but let me first go bid those farewell who are at home at my house." 62 And Jesus said unto him,
