Be ye not stiffnecked

2 Chronicles 29:1-5, 15-19

2 Chronicles 29:1, 2

It is quite a relief to get rid of Ahaz and meet with one of the best of kings. Now Judah will prosper again.

2 Chronicles 29:3

Those who mean to do well cannot begin too early; the first year of this king’s reign was full of good.

2 Chronicles 29:15

Those who are to sanctify God’s house must themselves first be sanctified; we cannot cleanse others if our own hands are foul.

2 Chronicles 29:16

That memorable brook which our Lord crossed when he once for all sanctified his people. All the uncleanness of our holy things he has beheld; and by passing over that brook in sorrow he has put it all away.

2 Chronicles 29:19

The house being purged, worship could begin; our hearts also must be purified before we can offer acceptable homage to the Lord.

2 Chronicles 30:1, 6-12

2 Chronicles 30:1

Those who love God desire others to join with them in his service: true revivals create a missionary spirit. The kingdom of Israel was dissolving, and the poor people who remained could be reached by Hezekiah.

2 Chronicles 30:10

And no wonder. Ridicule is the favourite weapon of wicked men. Let us not marvel if the world scorns us and our entreaties; it only acts after its own nature.

2 Chronicles 30:11

Thank God, there is always some good soil for the divine seed to fall upon. Let us not be weary in well-doing.

2 Chronicles 30:12

The hand of the Lord works wonders: our churches and our nation need it. Lord, stretch out thy saving arm and glorify thy Son.
