Then Elijah said to the people, "I, even I only, am left a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets number four hundred fifty. (1 Kings 18:22 NRSV)
Remember there are people who still care. When Elijah cried out that he was the only one left in Israel who cared, God called him a liar. He showed him 7,000 persons who had not bowed down to Baal. Good people. Concerned people. Dedicated people. All they needed was someone to step out from the crowd and give them some leadership.

My friends, you and I need to recognize that in our own community and our own city and our own nation and in the world at large there are good people, concerned people, dedicated people who do care about the same problems we care about. They are waiting for someone to step out and provide some leadership.

"What are you doing here, Elijah?" Why are you hiding in this cave? Why aren't you out there making a difference?

Lord Jesus, you have made a difference in my life and in my world. Show me the way to make a difference. Amen.
