Our relationships need to have an edge of ‘wild’ about them.
Book of Joshua.
1 Kings 12 onwards.

- Elijah was sent first to the North.
- Then Ahab comes to the throne – one of the worst kings – like Jeroboam. He brought himself a wife called Jezebel.
- She dragged his heart after Baal worship and the massacre of Ahab’s people.
