A Bed, Table, Stool and a Candlestick

In 2 Kings chapter 4:10 there are four things that the Shunammite woman provided for the prophet Elisha and are illustrative of the four things which every Christian worker for JESUS needs. They are:

  1. The Bed – a symbol of Rest which is only found in Christ Jesus by coming to HIM and being yoked in His will. (Matt. 11:28, 29)
  2. The Table – a symbol of Fellowship with Him, for He sets a table before us in the presence of our enemies. (Psa. 23:5)
  3. A Stool – the symbol of instruction for Jesus, for we must sit at HIS feet and learn of Him, that we may know HIS will. (Jn. 10:39)
  4. A Candlestick – a symbol of Testimony of Jesus, for He says, we are the “Light” of the world for we are His witnesses. (Matt 5:14; Acts 1:8)

These are illustrative of what a Christian worker needs. Let’s get to work!!
