Hello This is a Test

Tuesday Devo


2 Chronicles 34:1-2
Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. 2 He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight and followed the example of his ancestor David. He did not turn away from doing what was right.


Josiah is the ideal king of Deut. 17:20, who does not turn from the Mosaic law to the right or to the left. He transcends even David and Hezekiah in his faithfulness to God (2 Kings 23:21–25).
Josiah as a righteous king prefigures Christ.


  • We talked on Sunday about Josiah's lineage. His father and grandfather were horrible kings, some of the worst in scripture. They went their own evil ways and refused to be obedient to God. Josiah then comes to power at only eight years old. By the time he was 20 he starts to clean up Judah and Jerusalem and turn the land and people back towards God. INFLUENCE is not determined by AGE. All God needs is someone that is willing to go with him. You're never too young or too old. What might God want to do through you? Have you limited yourself because you think he couldn't use you?

  • Reflect on this quote by Shane Pruitt... “If you treat students like they're too young to do anything significant for the Kingdom of God, they will believe you. However, if you treat students like they're the church right now called to do significant things for the Kingdom of God, they will believe you.” God consistently used young people throughout scripture to do big things. Parents, are you encouraging your kids that they are the church NOW and that God can use them to do great things NOW? Non-parents, is their a young person in your life that you can encourage in the same way?


  • That you would be willing to be used.
  • That you would remind young people God wants to use them to do big things.

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory! 

4. Can a person be good enough to go to heaven? No. Because Jesus rose from the dead proving He is God, I believe a person is saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
