would you that Christ when He cometh should find me idle? There is the work of every day, which is to be done in its day, which man must apply to every morning―for the lights are set up for us to work by, not to play by―and which he must stick to till evening; it will be time enough to rest when the night comes.

CHARLES SIMEON: Through the mercy of our God, the day is yet continued to you; that day, which, within the last year, has closed on thousands, who, humanly speaking, were as likely to live as you.

And Elisha said unto him, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head today? And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Jericho.

And he said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head today? MILLER (1840-1912): God leads us on step by step, each step a new revelation.

And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.

And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the LORD hath sent me to Bethel.

And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace. He led Elijah on with new calls to new errands, from Gilgal to Bethel, from Bethel to Jericho, from Jericho to Jordan, and then over the river and up among the hills, until at last, as he went on, the chariot came down and lifted him away.

In this same beautiful way does God lead each one of His children through life. But He knows; and He calls us forward, to this duty and experience today, to others tomorrow, and so on and on, until we come to the last step, and that will be into glory. It was to visit the schools of the prophets that he went to Bethel and to Jericho.

JOHN CALVIN: So, when we see that a short period of life is allotted to us, we ought to be ashamed of languishing in idleness.

A beautiful covered porch, the veranda, was falling down outside. If we had a large bank account maybe we’d be done by now.

Elijah’s prompt obedience teaches us our side of the lesson. He wanted to give his last counsels to the young students whom he had been training and on whom the future religious work among the people would depend. Saith Christ, I have a set time to work in; that is, that which he here calleth day, the time wherein Christ was to live upon the earth.

I am not to be here always, there will come a time when I must be absent from the earth, then none of this work can be done.

It was hard to leave our home, especially my kitchen!
