DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Kings 21-23
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jedidah the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath. And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the ways of his father David; he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.” (2 Kings 22:1-2)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the merciful God (Psalm 103:8). Our God does not tolerate sin (Isaiah 59:2), but God does choose to have mercy on those who repent from their sins during His grace period (Joel 2:12-13 and John 3:16-18). Our God is the holy God (Psalm 99:9). God is the God of justice (Isaiah 45:21). God provides justice, correction, and judgment for all peoples and all nations (Psalm 67:3-4, Psalm 94:10, Psalm 105:7, Jeremiah 10:7, and Jeremiah 18:7-10). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Manasseh and King Amon reigned over Judah, how Hilkiah the High Priest found God’s book of law, and Shaphan the Scribe read it to King Josiah, and how King Josiah restored true worship to God. King Jehoahaz and King Jehoiakim reigned after King Josiah, and Necho was the Pharaoh of Egypt. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that, our God is the holy God (Psalm 99:9), God does not tolerate sin (Isaiah 59:2), and sin can have very bad consequences (Romans 6:23). But, thank God for His faithfulness! Amen. Thank God that there is a way for salvation! Thank God that there is a way for us to be cleanse from our sins (James 4:7-8 and 1 John 1:9)! Amen. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! Amen. Truly, God loves all people (John 3:16-17), and God is calling all people to repentance (Isaiah 55:6-7 and 2 Peter 3:9). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. Give glory to the Most High God, and May God bless you always in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
