Let me tell you about some wickedness. Ahab was a King of Israel. His wife was Jezebel, daughter of a pagan king. Ahab was a horrible king. With Jezebel, he introduced pagan religious practices into the life of Israel. Elijah, a great prophet of God, stood up to them. He ultimately had to flee Jezebel's wrath. He fell into despair. Ahab and Jezebel led Israel into wickedness.
So today we're going to look at a man name Elisha. Not Elijah. But his lesser known apprentice, Elisha.
I'm sure we've all know someone named Elijah or known of someone named Elijah. It's currently in the top five for baby names. Now how many of you know an Elisha? Not even in the top 800. I've only heard of one Elisha, and that's Elisha Cuthbert, the actress. So yeah, Elisha is one of the lesser knowns.
Even though a lesser known, the fact is, Elisha ended up doing twice as many miracles as Elijah. Today, and next week, we're going to look at the life of Elisha, and how we can see God's miracles in our lives.
Let's begin by establishing a couple of touchpoints of the Christian life.
First, the Christian life is a miraculous life.
If you're a new believer, or if you're still wondering what it means to be a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, your spiritual adventure is supposed to be miraculous. It's not boring, dull, or business as usual. It is miraculous.
