We confess faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and rejoice in the salvation He freely gives His people by His grace. In response to God’s goodness in this way, we seek to love God in return and seek to share what we have come to know with the people of Bendigo and surrounds.
Sadly, with lockdown restrictions back again, we won’t be able to meet this Sunday 8th August at 10:30am.
However you can still tune in to Life 105.1 FMat 9am when we’ll praise God with hymns and songs, prayers and readings. There’ll also be something for the children and Philip will be preaching on 2 Kings 4:1-7 (the sixth in a series on the prophet Elisha). Or, you can always listen in on our website whenever it suits!
After Elisha’s initial encounter with the people of Jericho and then some youths of Bethel, the scene changes somewhat in 2 Kings 3:1-27 where we meet Elisha in the company of the Kings of Israel, Judah and Edom. The situation facing these kings and their armies was nothing short of desparate. Having taking the desert route to attack the kingdom of Moab, they soon ran out of water and were facing the prospect of death. How Elisha came to be among these kings and their armies is not told to us, but he was, and when approached, the miracle he performed not only guaranteed the survival of the kings and their armies, but also the defeat of Moab and brought glory to God who can do ‘more than we ask or think’ (Ephesians 3:20).
