Nothing More – Nothing Less

1 Kings 16:30 Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him.

He was the worst king of Israel.
He did more to bring down the nation and turn it away from God than any other king before him.
What did the ones that oppose him do?
What do those that oppose a president do today?
They rant and rave.
They boast great swelling words of what they will do next.
Threats are made.
Social media carries a smear campaign.
The truth is mixed with lies and the difference is difficult to see.
Now, what happened during the days of King Ahab?
Elijah the Tishbite, a prophet of the Most High God!
It says, “Then the word of the Lord came to him.” 11 Kings 17:2
You see this phrase over and over.
Elijah opposed the king only by the word of the Lord.
No slanderous words.
No empty threats.
No smear campaign.
Elijah prayed and did only what God directed him to do.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Shouldn’t today’s Christian do no less?
