Christian Devotional – May 2, 2012

VERSE:
2 Kings 2:13–He also took up the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and returned and stood by the bank of the Jordan.

TRUTH:
Elisha had been walking alongside Elijah for some time now. He was learning and following and seeing all that Elijah did and had first-hand experience of Elijah’s relationship with God. However, ultimately, Elisha had to make a decision for himself to pick up and follow the path that God had for him. Have we each made our own decision to follow Christ?

RESPONSE:
Lord, You provide great leaders and teachers for me, but eventually the decision to follow You is mine. I can’t just sit in the shadows of others and expect that to be sufficient. I pray You will give me strength to pick up the mantle and follow the path You have for me.
