Oops

So, I’m reading in 2 Kings and find where Elijah calls down fire from heaven and kills a bunch of soldiers, then parts the Jordan River and walks across. That’s where I said “Oops.”

See, a few weeks ago I was preaching about Elijah and said that after he prayed for rain on Mt. Carmel, he never performed another miracle.*

Like I said, Oops.

Here’s the “news that isn’t really news”: Pastor Steve makes mistakes. Even when he’s preaching.

The good news? There may occasionally be mistakes in my sermons, but there are no mistakes in God’s Word. Whatever it speaks about, it speaks with complete accuracy.

And when it speaks into our lives, it always nails us.

* The point I was making still stands, but the one statement was wrong.
