Jotham - King of Judah




Reference II Kings 15:32-38
II Chronicles 27
Reign 16 years
Theme Let others see God through your life.
Lesson Don't hide your light under a bushel.
Key Verse "And he (Jotham) did that which was right in the sight of the LORD ... And the people did yet corruptly."
II Chronicles 27:2
Memory Verse "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
(Matthew 5:16)
Application There are many Christians today who live "good" and "right" lives, yet very few people actually know that they are Christians. It is imperative in this dark world that we back up our good actions with verbal testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Spiritual Epitaph "So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God."
(II Chronicles 27:6).

According to the short account of Jotham's 16-year reign, the king did just about everything right. He did extensive rebuilding on the Temple walls and built towns, forts, and towers. Militarily, he defeated the Ammonites in battle: "So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God" (II Chronicles 27:6). Despite all this, in 16 years he was still unable to have a positive spiritual effect on his people.
