Jehu was a king seeking to be faithful to his Lord. In a country mired in the apostasy of its former king, Ahab, Jehu seeks to turn Israel back to the true worship of the true God. Thus, he executes the ministers of the false god Baal. Sadly, though he purges Israel of its Baal worship, “he did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit – the worship of the golden calves at Bethel and Dan” (verse 29). Thus, Jehu’s loyalties were divided, even if only subtly. Do we claim to be wholly devoted to the Lord while allowing our loyalties to be subtly divided or can we truly say to our God, “Semper fi”?
