Josiah

2 Chronicles 34:14-28     Roger Freeman     Sermon notes     Small group questions

What does a young Judean king have in common with us? How is he an everyday hero?
When you think about it, every one of us has opportunities to exercise our independence and autonomy in ways most people in Josiah’s day could never have done. In other words, we are more like King Josiah than we are like the thousands of people he ruled over.
We make our way every day in decisions big and small. We don’t often think about it, but every decision is made before the presence of God. One thing we want to learn this week is that we desperately need to be in tune with his will and his Word.
The key to that is humility. Now there’s a topic we know too little about! The active ingredient in humility is submission. Today’s message is a call to submit ourselves before God so we can fulfill his purposes for us.
