Total Commitment


There was no turning back for Elisha after destroying his livelihood. He offered his old life completely to God and it was totally destroyed in the process. And at the same time he was offering himself completely to God’s service, for whatever new purpose God had for him.

By sharing with the townspeople, he testified of the transformative work God was doing in his life.
This event in Elisha’s life foreshadows the work of the cross in our lives.
