Sermon Snap Shot June 18, 2017

Elisha took up the ministry of Elijah and became a great prophet. When I heard this story in 1978, my pastor said, “The Christian faith is always only one generation from extinction. God has no in-laws or grandchildren. Everyone has to make their own decision. We need people to take up the mantle of ministry and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
In that moment, I knew God was calling me to a life of ordained ministry. Even in my retirement, I look for new ways to tell others of Jesus. Everyone can pass on their faith with a word, a prayer, even a smile. How will you share your faith today?
 
From Penney Rahm’s June 18, 2017 message entitled, “I Love to Tell THE Story: Elijah and Elisha…A Call Story”
 
Rev. Lane Glaze
Pastor, Waters Edge UMC
