13. God Isn't a Checkbox

April 8, 2018 Speaker: Pastor Bill Series: Two Nations Under God

Topic: the Bible Passage: 2 Kings 13:10–20

King Jehoash comes to Elisha, not to honor him on his deathbed, but because he’s exhausted all his other options. Once he’s there, he really doesn’t want to hear what Elisha has to say, he just wants to know what boxes he has to check in order to hopefully treat God like his genie. He does what God asks, but he does it half-hearted. God’s not impressed. Let’s be honest: we do the same thing day in and day out. We check the boxes and then extend our hand for whatever God has to offer, but maybe we’re missing the point altogether.
