Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

2 Kings 10 (ESV)

Now Ahab had seventy sons in Samaria. So Jehu wrote letters and sent them to Samaria, to the rulers of the city, to the elders, and to the guardians of the sonsof Ahab, saying, “Now then, as soon as this letter comes to you, seeing your master’s sons are with you, and there are with you chariots and horses, fortified cities also, and weapons, select the best and fittest of your master’s sons and set him on his father’s throne and fight for your master’s house.” But they were exceedingly afraid and said, “Behold, the two kings could not stand before him. How then can we stand?” So he who was over the palace, and he who was over the city, together with the elders and the guardians, sent to Jehu, saying, “We are your servants, and we will do all that you tell us.

  1. 27And they demolished the pillar of Baal, and demolished the house of Baal, and made it a latrine to this day.
    28Thus Jehu wiped out Baal from Israel. 29But Jehu did not turn aside from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin—that is, the golden calves that were in Bethel and in Dan. 30And the Lord said to Jehu, “Because you have done well in carrying out what is right in my eyes, and have done to the house of Ahab according to all that was in my heart, your sons of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel

  2. How confusing it is to see Jehu be so passionate about fulfilling Elijah’s prophecy about Ahab by completely annihilating his family and then on top of this killing the priests of Baal, and yet not following God completely by setting aside other false worship and not following the law of the Lord completely. It’s a reminder to us that we can’t just obey God in the ways that are convenient, or beneficial, or easier or more understandable or whatever would cause us to obey some and not others. Faith and humility motivate and direct us to follow all the standards of God and not just those that justify us or tickle our fancy.
