2 Kings 1:1-4:44

Elijah mentored Elisha as both were used by God to carry his words to the Israelites.


1. Who are the mentors in your life? Who are your role models, the people you look up to? Do you have spiritual mentors? If so, who? Are you a mentor to other youth?

2. Some of you received your faith through your parents. Do you feel somewhat like Elisha following in Elijah’s footsteps? What expectations are placed on you because of your parent’s faith? What feelings do you have as a result of these expectations?

3. What needs do you have as a youth living for God? What are your struggles in defending the faith as Elijah and Elisha did? How can the story of Elisha help you in dealing with needs, expectations, and struggles in living for God?

4. In what ways was Elisha confirmed and encouraged in his call to ministry by his mentor? How can you discover your own call to ministry? What confirmations do you seek in living for God? What would it take for God to convince you to stand up for God in your school?

5. What were the things that Elisha gained as he was mentored by Elijah? What lessons did he learn? What things were most important to his own call and ministry?

6. Elisha and Elijah had many visible signs that God was with them. Name some of them. What visible signs have you seen that God is with you?

7. What lessons can we learn from the story of Elijah and Elisha about mentoring? About standing up for God? About being God’s spokesman? About answering God’s call in our lives?
