2 Kings 2:9a

(NIV1984) 2 Kings 2:9a – “When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?'”

There’s no more avoiding it any longer.  Even Elijah has said it – he’s being taken.  He’s not dying; he’s being taken.  And that’s an interesting thing in and of itself.

And there’s this question – “what can I do for you” – does Elijah have any idea what Elisha’s going to answer?  Do I have any idea how I would answer?

Security.  Or peace of mind.  Confidence.  Courage.  Blessings beyond imagining.  What all could people ask for?  What all would they want?  And Elisha isn’t assured that he’ll get any of it.

So what does he ask for?
