In 2 Chronicles 30, King Hezekiah called for all of Judah and those who remained in Israel to come together to celebrate the Passover. Some of the people responded well, while others laughed at the idea. Those who responded well joined Hezekiah in Jerusalem and celebrated the Passover. Verse 26 says there was “great joy in Jerusalem, because there was nothing like this in Jerusalem since the days of Solomon the son of David, King of Israel.” This statement points to at least 2 things. First, the fact this had not happened since the Kingdom had been united shows how far they had walked away from the LORD. Second, the fact that their was joy shows that when people walk in obedience to the LORD, joy follows. LORD, by Your grace, enable me to be faithful to YOU all the days of my life. Thank You for the Joy you give as I obediently follow You.
