Christian Devotional – May 23, 2012

VERSE:
2 Kings 23:2-The king went up to the house of the Lord and all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests and the prophets and all the people, both small and great; and he read in their hearing all the words of the book of the covenant which was found in the house of the Lord.

TRUTH:
Josiah had been changed by the reading of God’s Word, so the first thing he did was gather everyone together and read God’s Word to them. The people heard and took the message to heart and helped Josiah exact his wide-sweeping reform. How will hearing the Word of God affect us? Do we respond and act when we hear it? Do we share it with others?

RESPONSE:
Lord, You are amazing. Your Word is living and active and works within all who hear it. I pray You will give me boldness to share Your Word with others today.
