Today we are continuing in Romans, and read two chapters in 2 Kings.
Romans 12. We shall offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God, Serve God with the spiritual gifts He has given you, do it as members of one spiritual body, behave like a Christian, bless those who persecute you, overcome Evil by Good.
2 Kings 17. Hoshea was the last King over Israel, the defeated Israelites were carried captive to Assyria, and Assyria then resettled Samaria with their own people.
2 Kings 18, Hezekiah Reigned in Judah, and was threatened by the Assyrians. Sennacherib boasted against the LORD, but Hezekiah still trusted that the LORD would deliver his people. The chapter ends with a standoff.
