Judges 1:1-2:5; Isaiah 21:1-22:14; 1 Corinthians 1:1-31

He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the Lord and repaired them. 2 Chronicles 29:3

Only 25 years old! This remarkable young man made a huge impact on God’s people. Years of departure had left the house of God in ruins. The doors were closed, the lamp of God was put out and the altar of incense was cold. In his first year Hezekiah opened the doors of the house of the Lord. His priority was God first — making the house of God accessible and welcoming. The light of God shone brightly once again! Young people your contribution to God’s house is valued and needed! —Sid Halsband

“Revive Thy work, O Lord!”
Disturb this sleep of death;
Quicken the smould’ring embers,
Lord, by Thine almighty breath. —Albert Midlane
