When someone has an effective way with words, we say they have a silver tongue or are a slick talker. Both phrases could be used to describe King Ahab. In yesterday’s reading, the Israelite king persuaded his Judean ally Jehoshaphat to put on his royal robes and join him in battle, while Ahab disguised himself as an average soldier (22:30).

Hello friends,

Where have all the GOOD kings gone? When you read through the book of 1 Kings (our Bible study for May), you may find yourself asking

Were any kings following God?
Why did these leaders make so many disastrous choices?!!

No God Like You: A Study of 1 Kings might frustrate you with its record of continued disobedience and faulty leadership, but it will also encourage you to better appreciate our one true Leader: King Jesus!

I’d like to introduce you to a new author for this month. Dr. Steven Sanchez helps the Bible come alive for students at Moody Bible Institute. I know you will be blessed by his fresh insights and biblical expertise.

Listen in to my conversations with Dr. Sanchez which are posted on the Today in the Word YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe so you’ll be updated for each new video.
