From the Ends of the Earth

Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 9:1-12 (day four)

The Queen of Sheba came from the ends of the earth to see if all she had heard was true.  She had heard of the vast wisdom of Solomon and how God had poured out His blessing on Israel.  The report was so astounding she had to see for herself.  She was seeking answers.  What she found was that the report she had heard did not tell the half of it.  God had blessed Solomon and Israel beyond measure.

In the gospel accounts, the Queen of the South was referenced as a witness of the truth (Matthew 12:42; Luke 11:31).  Jesus cited her as an example or judge against the Pharisees who would not acknowledge Christ.  She recognized the glory of God without knowing Christ.  She traveled far and was richly rewarded for her diligent searching.

Does your life and witness point people to Jesus?  When people meet you, do they see God at work far beyond your abilities? The Pharisees recognized that Peter and John had understanding and wisdom and noted that they “had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13)…they just did not turn that recognition into relationship. Pray that your life will attract people from the ends of the earth and lead them to Christ!
