[Jehoshaphat] did what was right in Jehovah’s eyes.—2 Chron. 20:32.

 

Like his father, Asa, Jehoshaphat encouraged the people to search for Jehovah. He did so by organizing a teaching campaign that used “the book of Jehovah’s Law.” (2 Chron. 17:7-10) He even went to the territory of the northern kingdom of Israel, to the mountainous region of Ephraim, “to bring them back to Jehovah.” (2 Chron. 19:4) We can all have a share in the great teaching campaign that Jehovah is having done today. Is it your goal each month to teach the Word of God to others, trying to move their heart to serve God? By your extending yourself and with God’s blessing, you may be able to start a Bible study. Is that a goal that you pray about? Are you willing to accept this challenge, even giving up some of what is commonly viewed as free time? And just as Jehoshaphat went to the territory of Ephraim to help people return to true worship, we can reach out to those who have become inactive. w17.03 3:10, 11

The Bible also says in 2 Chron. 22:9 that Jehoshaphat was a king "who searched for Jehovah with ALL his heart."  When we search for Jehovah we also want to please him. We should take every opportunity to talk to everyone we can about Jehovah, his Son, and his Kingdom. We can only do this if we share in the preaching work; formally or informally. With Jehovah's help, I want to talk with people anywhere I go and to always have some type of Bible based material on me. As a baptized servant, this is what I promised Jehovah I would do.
