Today’s passage is 1 Kings 18:30-46. Let’s go!
1 Kings 18:30 (NIV)
30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the LORD, which was in ruins.
On verse 30: What does the writer of 1 Kings mean when writing that Elijah “repaired the altar of the Lord, which was in ruins”? It means that Elijah was re-establishing a culture of worshiping the Lord, a culture that had disappeared in the face of rampant and ongoing idolatry in Israel.
What can we learn from this? Before you can experience much of the Holy Spirit, you need to repair and re-establish a life of worshiping the Lord. That includes prioritizing weekly worship with your church community, spending regular daily time with God, and trying to live each day for God’s glory.
