2 Chronicles 21:20
Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. He passed away, to no one’s regret, and was buried in the City of David, but not in the tombs of the kings.
Jehoram was a 32-year-old King of Judah. He succeeded his father Jehoshaphat who was a great leader and loved the Lord. But Jehoram immediately had all of his brothers killed, instituted the ways of Israel under the wicked King Ahab, and even married one of Ahab’s daughters. He reigned for eight years in Judah and when he died the Bible says, “No One Regretted It.”
At the end of the day the question will always be … “Did you train leaders?” Did you prepare the next generation? Did you live to continue your faith or did you live to continue YOU? Those of us who are committed to our faith and the propagation of the Gospel until the Lord’s soon return must do everything in our power to ensure that Biblical Truth and the Faith upon which we stand is securely entrusted to those who follow behind us. Anything less would suggest, “Legacy Isn’t On Our Radar.” That is certainly the conclusion we arrive at in the life of Jehoram. He lived for himself and his own interest and God took him out for such selfishness. “Legacy Wasn’t On His Radar!” It’s a Big World and Future out there. Let’s run to it and bring as many with us as possible to take our place when it’s our time to leave.
If there is any striving in me today, may it center on preparing the next generation to “Lead People To JESUS!” Amen
