The role of a prophet comes with so many responsibilities because people trust a prophet to hear from God and tell them what he says. They come to the prophet if a problem needs solving or if they need direction on what steps to take concerning a matter. As we continue with the story of prophet Elisha, we will see how the prophets of old acted as intermediaries between God and his people, Israel.
This week, we will look at how God used Elisha to solve the problems of individuals (2 Kings 4:1-36, 2 Kings 5:1-14) and of a group of people (2 Kings 4:38-41, 2 Kings 7).
- Dealing with success (fame and glory) – 2 Kings 4:
- The cost of greed – 2 Kings 5:20-27
- The danger of unbelief – 2 Kings 7
- The value of faith – 2 Kings 4:20-37
- The importance of good works – 2 Kings 4:8-17
Children, it is important to note that whether you are the prophet or a person receiving a message from the prophet, obedience to God and His word is necessary.
