The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod on the Sabbath Morning of 21st of June, 2009. The characters of wicked Jezebel and Ahab. A murderous woman, devoted to the religion of the Devil and a covetous king who married and lived for this world’s mammon. But there in the palace was Obediah; A man who feared God greatly and bravely served The Lord even in the house of His enemies. Some of us will have the temperament of an Elijah or perhaps an Obediah; God has shaped and moulded us to fit into his purposes like the pieces of jigsaw and we too should fear The Lord as they did and faithfully seek to do His will in whatever circumstances He has ordained for our lives.
The text is 1Ki 18:3… And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly: For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)
Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly.
