Focus on Christ: A Nail in a Sure Place
There are two types of people in God's economy: those who serve self and those who serve God. Isaiah juxtaposes Shebna, who identified with flesh and death, and Eliakim, who put God first and whose name means "one whom God raises up." Eliakim is a type of Christ and God fastened him as a nail in a sure place, while everything Shebna heaped upon himself was taken from him. We all need to take spiritual inventory of who we identify with and where we put our focus. Isaiah 22:15-25. VF-2324.
