Sermon 30 Jun 2019

Crucify the flesh by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  All this history of God working in Elijah while the enemy tries to divide, frustrate, defeat, and destroy the people and the kingdom.  The struggle will continue long after Elijah is gone, so God assigns Elisha as his successor.  The mantle signifies power and authority, but also sacrifice and commitment.  In the same way, we who belong to Christ Jesus must crucify the flesh with its passions and desires in order to live by the Spirit.
