Wednesday, June 7th: 2 Chronicles 28-29, John 17

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is:  2 Chronicles 28-29; John 17

(Tammy here: had a crazy day and totally forgot to publish Nathan's post for him! Sorry for the delay!)

In our Old Testament reading today we read about two kings of Judah, father and son, one who did evil and one who followed God and did good.

King Ahaz did evil, 
2 Chronicles 28:3
He burned sacrifices in the Valley of Ben Hinnom and sacrificed his children in the fire, engaging in the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had driven out before the Israelites.

His son, King Hezekiah, did good. 
2 Chronicles 29:3
In the first month of the first year of his reign, he opened the doors of the temple of the Lord and repaired them.

No matter where we grew up or what we have done, God offers forgiveness and a chance to follow Him. We can make things right again  by turning to Him, it's not too late.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  2 Chronicles 30-31; John 18:1-18

This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and the one you have sent—Jesus Christ.

What an amazing privilege - to know God!
