Hezekiah’s Passover: Wrong but Still Right

The Biblical account of a particular Passover celebration when so much went wrong, but even more went right.

The Seal of the Spirit

Whoever you are, right this minute, imagine that God accepts you, and that He calls you holy, pure, blameless. And not because He’s just tolerant, but because you are holy to Him. Not after you clean up. Not after you deal with some things. Right now. This minute. What would that feel like?
