Today, in 2 Kings 10, we read about Jehu and his reign in Israel. The Lord commissioned him become the next king, and to remove Ahab’s family and exact judgment for all of the evil and idolatry that had been committed.
And Jehu started out in great Zeal for the Lord, executing those in Ahab’s family and all of the prophets of Baal.
We are told that “Jehu was not careful to follow the instruction of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart.” (2 Ki. 10:31)
He started with a bang, and then what? He seemed to rest on that instead of asking what else the Lord would have him do (as Spurgeon points out from the Spurgeon Study Bible).
The same question can be asked of us who have given our lives to the Lord. Maybe we have seen the Lord do mighty things through us, but the question is,
“What else would you have me (us) do?”
As we get ready for a respite this spring, this is the major question that each of us has to ask ourselves. And for those who are a part of a church body, what do you have for us to do?
