Today you should read: 2 Chronicles 23
This chapter shows the rule and reign of King Joash who comes from the lineage of David to bring the messiah to come. We also see him lead his people back to the covenant of the Lord. Or at least it starts out this way (but more on that in future Jumpstarts). We see his rise to the throne through the leadership of Jehoiada who was a priest of the Lord and the consequences of either accepting or rejecting his rightful kingship from others involved. With the rightful reign in place, Priest Jehoiada starts reforming God’s people as they tore down Baal’s temple and started obeying the laws of the Lord once again.
With the proper King in place, it motivated them to live for the Lord and this is just a shadow of our lives with King Jesus. Often we can’t reform our lives, ministries, or church without King Jesus ruling and reigning over us. He has all authority and Lordship over every area of our life and He’s a good and sovereign King so we can trust His rule and reign. He’s also a victorious King and conqueror so we should not be afraid to make proper reformations in those areas that need to be reformed.
