Warrior Wednesdays: Are You a Reformer or a Conformer?

Despite the wickedness of past generations including his own father Hezekiah decided to seek after the Lord. King Hezekiah was described as a king who had a close relationship with God. Above all he desired to obey God. 

Hezekiah was a reformer. He made quick changes to restore Judah back to God. In his first month as king he opened the doors of the temple and made necessary repairs. Sometimes we may see a problems in our church, but are not quick to make changes to fix the problems. Instead we complain, if you are unhappy with something talk to your church leaders and make resolutions. Judah was filled with remenants of a people who lacked trust in God, and Hezekiah made swift changes. Altars, idols, temples for false gods were destroyed. The  Passover was reinstituted as a nation wide holiday and Judah was revived. 

Hezekiah brought back the priests and the Levites who were unable to perform their duties because of Ahaz's evilness. Hezekiah called them back to service reminding them that God had chosen them to minister. Fortunately, we may not have to face a wicked king, but pressures or responsibilities can make us inactive and ineffective for God's service. Do not neglect the duty that God has called you to do. If you have become an inactive Christian servant by choice or circumstance look for ways to resume your responsibilities. Then like the Levities be ready for actions. (Tyndale, Life Application Bible.)
Stay Blessed and Continue Warring for Christ!
