Bible Story:

2 Kings 22

For many years, God’s special people, the Israelites had been without God’s law. They had forgotten His law and it had been lost. When Josiah became the new king of the tribe of Judah, the law was discovered and the Israelites realized just how sinful they had been. They had rejected their need for God.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
