2023 Day 167 – 1 Kings 9; 2 Chronicles 8

God greatly blessed Solomon, but He required something from Solomon as well. God demanded obedience. “But if you or your sons at all turn from following Me, and do not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will cut off Israel from the land which I have given them; and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight. Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.” (1 Kings 9:6-7 NKJV) The same requirement of obedience applies to us today.  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 7:21 NKJV) 

Today’s reading: 1 Kings 9; 2 Chronicles 8
