2 Ki 1-2; Ecc 7:15-29

Impressive. Absolute respect for the man of God who gets whooshed up to heaven in a chariot of fire.

And his successor. Anyone who can follow Elijah is a man’s man.

We also have mad respect for modern day spiritual heroes–the men like Bro. Matheny who have given the best years of their adult life to serve God in non-home places around the globe.


But what we don’t see are the hardships. We gloss over the integrity needed to BE those men. We sometimes ignore their absolute dedication to God, even when it made them wildly unpopular. We forget that they got embarrassed a lot, or that they were lonely, or that having character is hard work–that it takes minute by minute attention.

Surrender is a daily task. Mad respect does not come overnight. Being spiritually “impressive” comes from being real.

Are you?


  1. What do you think Elijah and Elisha’s day to day life was like? How do you try to live as a man/woman of God
  2. What are your thoughts on Ecc. 7:15-29?
  3. What are 3 things you are thankful for?
  4. Work on 1 Cor. 15:58.
