“He must become greater; I must become less.” ~ John 3.30  

As we start a new teaching series this Sunday, 7/23 on lessons from the life of Elisha, our hope is that you will be encouraged to grow in your relationship with Christ. We have spent a few weekends on the availability of Christ’s presence and now, we turn to the Old Testament, while keeping in mind John the Baptist’s complete reversal from a secular outlook of making self-greater – rather, to seeing that Christ is greater. This weekend, we are focusing on Elijah’s impact on Elisha. We’ll highlight Elisha’s insistence, his focus and commitment, and his willingness to ask ‘difficult things” (2 Kings 2.9-10; 14). Elisha’s story is full of God working in miraculous ways and it reminds us of what G.K. Chesterton remembered in his autobiography, “what was wonderful about childhood is that anything in it was a wonder. It was not merely a world full of miracles; it was a miraculous world.”
