Our HIStory

Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; nor did any like him arise after him. – 2 Kings 23:25

The Bible says that there was no other king like Josiah, either before him or after him, who completely turned to God. In Josiah’s case, this proclamation on his unique place in history was a testimony to his utter faithfulness and service to God. Of course, the same statement could have been made about Ahab, the wicked king of Israel. There wasn’t another like him either!

What will be your testimony after you depart this earthly existence? Will others say, “Before (your name), there wasn’t another (your career) like him and after (your name) the same was true?” Even if our lives are in no way “historic,” I can say with all certainty that this is the case. There will never be another “you.” With the life we have been given, we should make a difference for Christ. Perhaps no one, except the Lord, will ever know what we have done.

In any case, our history is His.

History is the story of events, with praise or blame. – Cotton Mather
