2 Chronicles 35:18 KJV
And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
When the name David is mentioned, probably the first thing that comes to your mind is his victory over Goliath. Solomon will remind you of the temple. Others have one thing peculiar with their names. That is what we remember them for.
Yesterday when we mentioned Josiah, we talked of the reformation he brought about. We read today that that wasn’t yet his greatest accomplishment. The records have him as re-enacting the feast of the Passover like no one else ever did since the days of Samuel the prophet (v18). He gave people an experience of their lives, an experience of that night when they left Egypt.
Unfortunately, many of us Christians do not bother much about the stories we are writing with our lives. What would you be remembered for? What would come to the minds of your folks when your name is mentioned?
What power or otherwise would your name wield when it is presented? You owe yourself and your God that responsibility. I pray your name doesn’t just become a by-word among your kinsmen. Make an impact.
Have a blessed day. #TGIF.
