THIS WEEK WE'RE IN:
1 & 2 Chronicles
THE GOLDEN THREAD OF JESUS THROUGH CHRONICLES
As I read 1 and 2 Chronicles as someone this side of the New Testament, I cannot help but see a beautiful thread of the promise of God to David and Solomon, and his faithfulness to his people. This beautiful golden thread that the author is portraying shows how God was faithful even when the people and kings of Judah were not. Time and time again when the new king of Judah is introduced just like in the story of the book of Kings you hold your breath in hope that this one will do right in the eyes of the LORD. This beautiful golden thread is not stopped by the formula of what constitutes a right king and what constitutes an evil one because even when the kings do the wrong thing God is still faithful to his promise and his remnant still prevail.
