The Never-Ending Walk

Elisha was a follower of the prophet Elijah. When Elijah was carried to Heaven by a whirlwind in a chariot of fire, it was a sign to Elisha that God had given him what he had asked for: a double portion of Elijah’s spirit (II Kings 2:9-11).

Elisha went on to perform many great miracles by God’s power. This probably caused his reputation to grow among the people. However, there was something in addition to great miracles which called attention to Elisha. In the case of the Shunammite woman, the most notable thing about Elisha was his consistent walk with the Lord.

And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually.

II Kings 4:9

First, this woman perceived that Elisha was holy. There should be something noticeably different about the “walk” (daily life) of a Christian. Second, she perceived that Elisha was a man “of God.” Those who walk closely with the Lord Jesus will begin to resemble Him. Finally, she perceived that Elisha went about the Lord’s business “continually.” What a great testimony it would be if regenerated believers on the Lord Jesus Christ would resolve to serve Him, to walk with Him, to proclaim Him, to promote His Kingdom, and to do His will continually.
