And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.”
2 Kings 2:9

Now, imagine that you are Elijah and your closest compatriot asks you for a double-portion of the Spirit to rest on you; what would you say? What would you say to a person who asks you how is it that you have not been negatively affected by the virus that is ravaging the world? How can you be so calm? What would you say? Would you say, “Well, it is just my nature.” Or, would you take advantage of the opportunity and tell them about your best friend, Jesus Christ the Lord? Would you tell him that there is One who will see him through every trouble and trial of life? How would you respond?

Is It That Simple?

Elijah said, “You ask a hard thing but if you see me when I am taken up it will be as you ask.” If a friend asks you, “How can I have what you have,” you can tell him, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved;” then you will have what I have. He might ask, “Is it that simple?” You can tell him that the assurance that you have is through your relationship with Jesus and that he can have the same peace–simply believe on Jesus.

Is that about what you would say to your friend? It is the best answer that you can give—don’t you know! Have a blessed day, amen.

A Pastor’s Worse Nightmare

Have you ever, intentionally, interjected yourself into someone else’s disputes? Policemen (please pray for them) have found that the most dangerous situations that they have to go into is family fights. The tempers of both spouses are already red hot and when one is about to arrested for domestic violence the other spouse will turn on them.

No Steak?

Just a few weeks ago, my wife and I went to our favorite steak house and ordered our favorite steak only to find out that they were out of it. Now, due to Covid-19, they have dropped it completely from their menu. Bummer. I mean, when you have your taste buds set for something not much else will do. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?!

The Kisses of an Enemy

Don’t ever try to ease the discomfort of someone whom the Holy Spirit is making uncomfortable! Be careful not to communicate to your friends that you find their lack of faith acceptable. You are not acting in true friendship if you condone disobedience or even if you look the other way.
