From Kings to the KING
"Passing The Baton"
May 13, 2018. Continuing our series in Kings, Pastor Joe Hellerman teaches a message from 2 Kings 2.
This is a time of profound transition in Israel's history: Elijah the prophetic hero who proved God victorious over Baal and Israel's the prayer warrior, now passes the baton to Elisha. 2 Kings 2 describes how the people of Israel worried about this transition.
Change is still difficult for us today. Transitions - especially within our church - are still troubling. But Pastor Joe reminds us that just as we learn in the Old Testament, so even today we can trust that God's work is not limited to a particular person or time. God is still in control.
