Some kings left idols
What do we leave in our lives?
As you think over these words, is there something in your life that you know shouldn’t be there? Is there something you should get right with a brother? What are you waiting for?
It was easier to leave them there than it was to clean them out. We believe it to be easier to let a sin stay there, and it may be now, but… compared to the effect it will have on our life, is it worth it?
Some kings did right only when right influence was present.
What are you like when you are not at church? What are you like when that godly person isn’t around?
Even David, the standard didn’t do everything right! He had not kept the feast of tabernacles– Nehemiah 8:13-18. They observed it, but did not go out in booths.
If the Bible was still being written, what would God’s comments be about your life? I pray that you’d be mentioned as one that loved the Lord– if you need to have a personal relationship with Him, please see me or a deacon here today. After that, would He say that you did which was right, but…? What would that list look like? Or would He say that you follow Him perfectly?
