Revealing the Truth – Helping Others Recognize God’s Love

Second Kings 6 tells the story of King Aram’s attempts to silence the prophet Elisha. The king was understandably peeved by Elisha’s ability to predict where and when Aram’s army would attack Israel’s forces, thus eliminating Aram’s element of surprise and giving Israel a decided strategic advantage.

May 5, 2017 |

When Paul outlines the qualifications for leadership within the church, every checkpoint has to do with character. God seems far more concerned with personal integrity than with education, eloquence, or personal charisma. Without question, the standards are high.
