Invite and Encourage

As described in 2 Chronicles 30, Hezekiah had a role in the kingdom’s changing attitudes. He wrote a letter to invite others to celebrate the Passover. He encouraged the people to return to the Lord but many scorned and ridiculed the offer (v.10). The lesson we can take away is that even if many will not accept what we write or say in a time of faithlessness and spiritual bankruptcy, some will accept and join in so go for it – we have nothing to lose.

Life may not seem fair at times but if we make choices that honor God, we will end up victorious. Like Hezekiah, we can reach out with messages of encouragement and share about the joy that only God can make happen.

This day with God will be amazing. He is the creator of the universe with over 100 billion galaxies with each galaxy having billions of stars but it is His people that are His greatest creation of all. Let us pray then to treat everyone with great respect, kindness, and encouragement.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
