Burn the Plows: The Call of Elisha

May 17, 2024

Most of us would say we want to be used by God. But Pastor J.D. is challenging us to consider whether or not we’re really willing to take up our cross and follow wherever God leads. As we wrap up First Kings, we’re shifting our focus from the prophet Elijah to his protégé, Elisha. It’s the first message in the second half of our two-part series called, Something Better | Something Greater.

Let's watch God multiply his kingdom, together.

About Summit Life

We believe the gospel is a deep well of transformative grace – and we’ll never find the bottom.

We know life with Jesus extends beyond Sunday mornings. That’s why providing daily broadcasts, honest podcasts, insightful blogs, and challenging books are all part of J.D.’s ministry as a pastor – and as a believer. At the end of the day, we want you to be drawn deeper into the gospel and to fall more in love with Jesus.
