A Man Just Like Us
Sunday, April 15, 2012

References: 1 Kings 17

Elijah was a great man of prayer. The Lord used him to bring about many miracles in his day. In the New Testament it says that he was just like us, but how can this be? We do not typically see miracles happening, as they did for Elijah, so how is what James said true?

God's Wonderful Gift CDs

We often hear Isaiah 9:6 during the Christmas season. It is part of Handel's Messiah. In this series, James Boice takes us through this familiar scripture and shows what it reveals about God's wonderful gift to us. God is called by four names in this passage. Each name describes a gift that God gives to us in Christ Jesus. And Christ, who bears those names, ministers to us in four separate ways. He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Each of these names matches our needs. Dr. Boice looks at each one because together they describe the magnitude of this wonderful gift which God has given us in Jesus Christ at Christmas time.
