2 Kings 4:6
And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said to her…
The multiplication of the oil ran parallel with the demand of each successive vessel. As the sons brought them they became full. Whatever their size or shape, they were carried back, and set down, filled to the brim. When all were quite full, she bitterly lamented that there was not a vessel more. It is so that the Spirit of God has been supplying the need of the Church from that moment in the upper room, when the risen Lord began to pour Him forth. Vessel after vessel has been brought; men like , , , Luther, John Knox have been filled, and still the stream of oil and grace of spiritual plenitude and anointing is being poured forth.
(E. B. Meyer.)
