Central to this passage is the mystery of Christ and the glory of Christ that is to be revealed.
Chariots of Fire
Christians must not give in to the temptation to despair in the face of loud, high-profile opposition to God and the Christian faith. The same is true for us as it was with Elisha, that the sovereign Lord is on the throne, and “those who are with us are more than those who are with them” (2 Kgs. 6:16).
The Meaning of Deliverance
Contrary to modern notions, true freedom is not the casting off of all restraint, but freedom from the power of sin.
The Sign of Jonah
Jonah is a sign that points us to Christ and calls us to godly repentance that leads to life.
The Good Shepherd
Christ not only redeems us, but He continues to act creatively in His world governing all things down to the details.
