Go in Peace: A Holy Week Meditation on Vocation

The confrontation between Elisha and Naamen in 2 Kings 5 is one of the more provocative texts in all of the Scriptures. In this short chapel devotion given at Knox Theological Seminary in December, I reflect on perhaps the most difficult and often-overlooked aspects of this story ( v. 15-19), in which Elisha blesses Naamen’s vocation. Meditated on in the context of Holy Week, these surprising verses remind us that our vocation is one that we will often “suffer,” yet Christ is there with us to remind us, “go in peace.”
