There were people from all the tribes of Israel who wanted to obey the Lord, the God of Israel. So they went to Jerusalem with the Levites to sacrifice to the Lord, the God of their fathers. These people made the kingdom of Judah strong... during this time they lived the way David and Solomon had lived." v16-17

Mmmm... I love this. The scattered remnant of passionate faith. Jointly they made the kingdom of Judah strong, because God blesses those who eagerly pursue Him. I want to be one of those passionate faithful. Who is willing to drop everything to press closer, live out my faith by going to make that "sacrifice of praise" and in so doing, strengthen His family, His "nation" in this world.
