(Today's post by Adam Cooper)
2 Kings 10
But what can this bloody tale say to us today? Can we really draw anything from this ancient story? Indeed we can! The fact that stories like this can be as meaningful today as they were when they were first digested speaks to the awesomeness of God. On the surface this story looks like a new king killing those that may stand against what he believes. Look more deeply and you see justice being brought upon a sinful and rebellious nation. Nothing God does is unjust. Jehu did not kill these sinful Israelites….sin did. This is the timeless truth from this ancient tale; sin will be your undoing.
I am so thankful that I serve a just and gracious God that cared enough about me to sacrifice His son for my sins so that I don't have to worry about the Jehu's of the world.
