“Further, he made all who were present in Jerusalem and Benjamin stand [with him, in confirmation of it]. So the inhabitants of Jerusalem acted in accordance with the covenant of God, the God of their fathers.”
2 Chronicles 34.32 AMP
King Josiah instituted reforms in Judah. He read the law to the assembly of Israelites, vv. 29-30. He first committed himself to follow the law, v. 31. Then he called upon the people to do so.
Renewal and restoration begins with God’s word and with personal commitment to obey it fully. Then we are in position to make the call to others. Are you ready?
