1 Kings 18:1-16 – OBA WHO?
There are many famous Bible characters including Daniel, Joseph, Nehemiah, Peter, Paul, John the Baptist, Mary and Martha, Ruth, Esther and David. However, there are also many other characters in the Bible that we’ve hardly heard of. One such character is Obadiah, a man who served wicked king Ahab and his wife Jezebel. Maybe we are so unfamiliar with this man, that when his name is mentioned we might ask, “Oba Who?” Nevertheless, Obadiah was a good man who has much to teach us.
OBADIAH HUMBLED HIMSELF BEFORE GOD – Vss. 3, 12
He greatly feared the Lord from his youth.
OBADIAH HELPED THOSE IN NEED – Vss. 4, 13
When wicked Jezebel persecuted God’s prophets, he protected and fed them.
OBADIAH HEEDED GOD’S PROPHET – Vss. 5-16
Although Obadiah was afraid of getting himself in trouble, he did as Elijah told him.
