God shows us our sin so that we might seek His salvation.

2 Kings 21:1-22:20; Acts 28:17-31; Proverbs 16:28-17:4

The rediscovery of the Book of the Law (2 Kings 22) revealed the standard from which Israel had fallen, the standard to which Israel was called. The apostolic preaching had the same twofold effect, speaking of both sin (Acts 28:26-27) and salvation (Acts 26:28). “Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting with strife” (Proverbs 17:1). God’s Word reveals to us the inadequacy of a worldly way of living and the better way of resting in the Lord and His Word.
