“And with them he sent Levites, even Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tobadonijah, Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests.
And they taught in Judah, and had the book of the law of the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught the people.” (II Chronicles 17:8 – 9)
As king of Judah, Jehoshaphat instituted many changes. Among these was the sending of the religious leaders to the cities to teach the Word of the Lord. He knew that the way to lead those he was responsible for was to point them to the unfailing Word of God.
The only way to effective change in the life of any people is to be focused on the Lord. You will not have the government send preachers and teachers to give you the Word of the Lord. However, the Lord Himself has given you the complete Word of the Lord, the Bible. If that is read daily along with regular attendance and participation in your local church, your spiritual life will be strengthened and your service for the Lord will increased.
