Making a Josiah Find in 2020

ABOUT this message //
Sam asks, "Have you found the glory of the scriptures yet?" May 2020 be the year we all make a "Josiah Find" as we dive into God's word and let its reforming work mold each and every one of us.

2 Kings 22:8-11 (ESV)
8 And Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the Lord.” And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.
9 And Shaphan the secretary came to the king, and reported to the king, “Your servants have emptied out the money that was found in the house and have delivered it into the hand of the workmen who have the oversight of the house of the Lord.”
10 Then Shaphan the secretary told the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read it before the king.
11 When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes.
Josiah was already committed to the Lord and dedicated himself to the restoration of the Lord’s House.
But he was living primarily by tradition and a sincere heart.
Then a discovery was made of “the book of the law” which was at least the book of Deuteronomy.
An already dedicated king tears his clothes and repents at the hearing of the Word.
Then “sincere renovation” changed into “wholesale reformation”.
Have you found the glory of the scriptures yet?
I am praying that we all make a “Josiah Find” in 2020!
