Kings 12: Day 4
Pray and read
Ask God to grow you in wisdom as you read his word, that you might live a life pleasing to him in every way. Read Philippians 2:1-11.
Skim back over 2 Kings 11-12 and compare and contrast the rule of Athaliah and Joash. How do the people of Israel respond to each of them as rulers?
What is Jesus’ rule like? How is it different to other kings and rulers?
What hope does Jesus ruling style give us?
In what way is Jesus ruling style an example for us?
Praise God for Jesus, the servant king.
Ask God to help you follow in the pattern of Jesus, humbly serving others.
