Is personal peace enough? Once a believer is saved and safe (and his family) is it permitted to relax and enjoy the ride? I have been impressed this week with the heart of King Josiah. (Thanks for reading the Re verse passage in unity with the FBC family) 2 Chronicles tells of his concern for the nation of Judah even after Huldah prophesies that he himself will be spared. “Your eyes will not see the evil that I (God) will bring on this place (Jerusalem)” Like Abraham (Genesis 19) pleading the mercy of God, and unlike Hezekiah who in similar situation is satisfied to save his own skin (read 2 Kings 20 for this sad report), Josiah presses forward to explore the available mercy of God for others. He cares about His nation. Today as we pray the Lord’s prayer will we do the same? We will spread our net of concern over a wide circle? Followers of Christ have a larger goal than personal peace.
