Zeal, Temptation, Idolatry, and a Gentle Reminder
Rev. Scott Frazier gave a great sermon about the story of Jehu from 2 Kings 9-10. He showed how the bloody story of Jehu's zeal in exterminating the family of Ahab and the worship of Baal can help us understand how to deal with the idols in our lives of pride and anxiety and how Jehu's later failure to end the worship of golden calves can be a gentle reminder to us from the Lord that we should not make the good feeling that comes after a temptation a goal in itself.
