The Invatation

July 19, 2008

King Hezekiah of Judah one day decided to do what the scripture said. As he read it he noticed that God called for the people to celebrate Passover and he knew that they had not done it in a long time. So he set about planning it. He also knew that the people of Israel were called to celebrate it as well. Even though they were not his subjects, he decided to invite them. Now the message was sent but guess what?

2 Chronicles 30:10 Darby
(10) And the couriers passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh, even to Zebulun; but they laughed them to scorn and mocked them.

Not everyone wanted to celebrate God.

It has not changed much today. I want everyone that I meet to join me in worship of God. Not all will, most sadly will not. But the invitation needs to be made anyway.
