Josiah’s Reform

Pastor Kevin Rutledge - 11/26/2023 10:00 AM

In the passage from 2 Kings 22:1-20; 23:1-3, we are introduced to King Josiah of Judah, who is described as a righteous king who sought to follow the Lord's commands. Upon discovering the Book of the Law in the temple, which had been lost for many years, Josiah is deeply moved by its contents and initiates a nationwide spiritual revival. He leads the people in renewing their covenant with God and eradicating all forms of idolatry from the land.

In today's world, it is easy to get caught up in the pursuit of worldly pleasures and personal ambitions. However, the passage from 2 Kings reminds us that true happiness and contentment come from aligning ourselves with God's will. When we choose to follow Christ's commands, we are not only obeying God, but also investing in our own spiritual growth and well-being.
