Wholehearted Devotion

Then the king called together all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem.

He went up to the temple of the LORD with the men of Judah, the people of Jerusalem, the priests and the prophets—

all the people from the least to the greatest.

He read in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant, which had been found in the temple of the LORD.

The king stood by the pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the LORD -

to follow the LORD and keep

His commands,


and decrees

with all his heart

and all his soul,

thus confirming the words of the covenant written in this book.

Then all the people pledged themselves to the covenant.

(2 Kings 23:1-3, King Josiah's righteous response to discovering and hearing God's Word)

God help us to passionately and wholeheartedly search Your Word, so that we may know You, and hear You, and obey You. Give us grace to have a righteous response daily to all Your Truth.
