Discussion for 2 Kings 10

  • Anne
    Having experienced the power of God, how can we not serve Him fully? Holy Spirit help to be faithful to the one true God.
  • Will
    Isn 't it incredible that King Jehu did not walk in all the laws of God and did not destroy the "golden calves " etc. Even when a king obeyed he did not obey fully. Even when a king saw the hands of God working the king would not entirely deliver his earthly kingdom to God. Sounds very much like many believers today including myself.
