“Then Shaphan the secretary told the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read from it before the king. And when the king heard the words of the Law, he tore his clothes. And the king commanded Hilkiah, Ahikam the son of Shaphan, Abdon the son of Micah, Shaphan the secretary, and Asaiah the king’s servant, saying, “Go, inquire of the Lord for me and for those who are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that has been found. For great is the wrath of the Lord that is poured out on us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the Lord, to do according to all that is written in this book.”
- In a God-fearing church, you will find God’s Word. In God’s Word you will find out how you are falling short of His glory, and what He has commanded of you. This is probably the real reason that people do not attend church and fail to study His Word. God has far more interest in the direction you are going, than in the direction you have been. Seek Him in every method available to you.
