Monday, May 15th: 2 Kings 22-23; John 4:31:54 ~ Kezia

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 2 Kings 22-23; John 4:31-54

"But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about." Then his diciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?" "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work." John 4:32-34

Jesus demonstrates how easy it is to transition from a typical everyday topic, to a more serious, Godly topic. Jesus took something that his disciples knew very well, food, and used it to explain something they didn't know very well, doing the will of God.

We as Christians have the privilege of knowing the good news, and it's our responsibility to share it.

How can we use regular everyday conversations to explain the gospel?

2 Kings 23:25
Neither before nor after Josiah was there a king like him who turned to the Lord as he did—with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength, in accordance with all the Law of Moses.

Its interesting that before Josiah and after him, the kings of Judea didn't live for the Lord. I would have thought that some would have seen the life Josiah lived and wanted to follow. Do I look up to, and try and follow the example, other Christians that have lived for the Lord, or do I ignore the good example they have shown?
