"Just Like Him" - 07/02/14 - 2 Kings 1-4

"Your life repeated in my life. I want to be a holy man just like you." "That's a hard one!" said Elijah. "But if you're watching when I'm taken from you, you'll get what you've asked for. But only if you're watching." And so it happened. " (2:9-11)

How I desire for me to become Christlike. How I beg ABBA to transform my heart so I am not seen, but He is.
Less of me = more of Him.

Three times Elisha said, "Not on your life! I'm not letting you out of my sight!" (2:2)

Do I have this same commitment, this same drive, this same desire as Elisha? Or do I let myself take focus off of my Christ and look elsewhere? Do I allow self or someone or something else become my Love Idol?

It is only by watching Christ with all we are that we are able to become like Him. Anything else we absorb into ourselves will filter through to our fruits. Isn't it a relief knowing when we do fail, His grace and mercy cover us. The Holy Spirit, His Word, refortify us.

Praying this day and all those to come You are not letting Him out of your sight.
