II Chronicles 17:10-18:1 — “Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.” Jehoshaphat was a wise and godly king. He did not allow wealth and success to make him lazy and immoral, rather he used his position of strength to diligently care for God’s people. However, he made one very big mistake that would have devastating consequences for his family and for the nation after his passing.
In this sermon, we see what his mistake was and the impact it had. As we do so, we are presented with a vivid illustration of what happens when God’s people fail to apply the principle of separation.
