Word Wednesday.::219

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:


II Chronicles 34:30 NKJV

"The king went up to the house of theLord, with all the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem—the priests and the Levites, and all the people, great and small. And he read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant which had been found in the house of the Lord."



King Josiah, the great grandson of Hezekiah, really resembles his great grandfather. He was focused on restoring true worship to his people. The more I read/study the Bible, the more I see how central God's Word is when it comes to worship, thus Jesus said, "...worship in Spirit and in Truth." King Josiah knew to read the Book of the Covenant "...in their hearing...", which is also monumental in Nehemiah 8. God's Word is a necessary element in worship -- whether it be corporate or individual.


What's your Word?
