In this episode, Rev. Chris Cashen and Rev. Matt Holst explore 2 Kings 4 through the eyes of a deacon. As Matt points out, although this is not an obvious passage for deacons, it does include aspects of diaconal work, like caring for the widow by way of encouraging souls, and providing relief from distress. Matt insightfully notes that within this prophetical role of Elisha's there is clearly an element of mercy ministry and believes that if this situation presented itself at his church, his deacons would most certainly care for this widow and her sons.
Deacons, we hope you will be encouraged by this passage as you serve in your local church.
