The Call of Elisha

1 Kings 19:19-21 says, “So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. “Let me kiss my father and mother good-by,” he said, “and then I will come with you.” “Go back,” Elijah replied. “What have I done to you?” So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his attendant.”

Elisha received a call of God and there was no plan B! In order to start a new chapter, you must end the old one. Elisha wasn’t just buying in, He was totally selling out. So many times we want God to do something new while we keep doing the same old thing! God is calling His church to a full court press. It’s sad to say but many Christians are getting comfortable with comfort.

Elisha had a very bold spirit, without a doubt. In 2 Kings 2:9 he even asked Elijah to inherit a double portion of his faith! How could he ask God for something like that? Simple fact: Elisha didn’t hold anything back from God!

What do you need to let go today and be totally sold out to Jesus Christ? Give Him first place today! No turning back, no plan B! He deserves our best.

Make sure to show someone the love of Christ today. Go out of you way to bless someone that God puts on your heart. Be obedient! Love y’all!
