In 2 Kings 2:1-18 we see that Elisha’s ridiculous commitment to God was continual. Before Elijah is taken up into Heaven, he is called by God to visit Bethel and asks Elisha to stay behind. Elisha is so committed to serving God that he refuses Elijah’s request and goes with him to Bethel. This was not a one-time incident as Elisha served God faithfully until the day he died. He was the pure definition of what it means to be fully devoted to God. How committed are you to God? Are you fully committed or just committed when it’s convenient for you?
