Today’s Reading – 2 Kings Chapters 14-15
The long and winding road . . .
He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, just as his father Amaziah had done. The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. 2 King 15:3-4
However is a sad word.
It negates what ever proceeds it.
This is the story of the kings. Whatever good they might have done was left incomplete by their inability to turn the nation from the spiritual rebellion.
We are nearing the end of a long and winding road. This path that will lead to the destruction of the kingdom has been slow. It had taken so long because of God’s grace. God has constantly intervened and consistently called out to the wayward people to come back.
The story reminds us that although God is patient and graceful; God is also holy.
We can only kid ourselves for so long. We can only squander the opportunities God gives us for so long.
Death will come and with it judgement.
The road is coming to an end . . .
What have you done with all the opportunities along the way?
