Passionate or Polite: King Josiah

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Chenoa Zacchaeus

Examining the story of King Josiah (2 Chronicles 34), Pastor Trevor highlights how at just eight years of age Josiah already had a burning passion for God. Unlike his father, whom the Bible says did not pursue godly things, Josiah desired a reformation. While the temple of God was being rebuilt, the servants working reported to King Josiah that the Book of the Law had been found. After having it read aloud, King Josiah tore his clothes and began to weep. He had recognized how far the people had turned from God.

Upon reading this passage, Pastor Trevor asked the following question, “Has the Bible been lost in the church?” He continued on to explain how people go to church out of religious obligation or politeness but lacked the passion. He went on to encourage the church to be passionate for reformation like King Josiah had been and to bring the Word of God back in the church.
