April 16, 2023 - 2 Chronicles 25

“Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, yet not with a whole heart” (25:1-2). In our mid-week service, someone (I can’t remember who) noted that, though redeemed, we continue to sin and God has to work that sin out of us. There’s a picture of this truth right here: “[Amaziah] did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, yet not with a whole heart.” We have been loved by so great a love! And we do, indeed, love the One who has redeemed us. But we fall to temptation and we sin and, though so often doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord, its not with a whole heart that we do so. And so, over and over again, we turn and rest in his grace and sing:

Plenteous grace with thee is found,

grace to cover all my sin;

let the healing streams abound;

make and keep me pure within.

Thou of life the fountain art;

freely let me take of thee;

spring thou up within my heart,

rise to all eternity. -- Charles Wesley (1740)
