Last updated: 27 Jun 2020 09:25
When people act out of their personality - I like to call this, “Do they have their Type’s playbook in their back pocket?”
Life comes at ya fast
We call this ‘common grace’

Why would you say something so controversial and yet so brave?

The book of Kings binds up the fate of the people with the fate of the leader. Good kings bring blessing to the entire people, and bad kings bring judgment. Ultimately, the entire nation suffers for lack of a godly ruler. Yet the story also ends with a glimmer of hope, as the release of the Judean King Jehoiachin from prison (2 Kings 25:27–30) signals to discerning readers that the Davidic dynasty has not been snuffed out. The resounding takeaway from 1 and 2 Kings is how badly God’s people need a Savior King, and how grateful we should be that Jesus has come to be this for us. Think how things have now changed! God’s people are no longer dwindling in repeated cycles of unfaithfulness and judgment. Jesus has ascended to the position of supreme authority. The Spirit has been poured out. The gospel is surging forward. Jesus is, right now, reigning in power and glory, and interceding for his people. And one day, perhaps very soon, he is coming to complete the work.
