Hezekiah (Southern King 29 years) — King Hezekiah’s spiritual reforms & his Passover.

Today’s Readings:

Reading 1: 2 Kings 18:1-8

Reading 2: 2 Chronicles 29

Reading 3: 2 Chronicles 30

By way of contrast to yesterday’s chronicle of disobedience and disaster, today we read what was happening in Judah (the Southern Kingdom) at the same time.

Hezekiah was unique in all the kings of Judah, and the record of his reign makes heartening and challenging reading. See what one man can do in resisting evil, obeying God, and leading others to do the same!

God is undoubtedly raising up modern day Hezekiahs who will bring light where there is darkness, obedience in place of apathy or rebellion, and joy to God’s heart in a broken world.

Have a great day!

Mark.
