Enemies

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Chronicles 17–19.
After Asa, king of Judah, died, his son Jehoshaphat reigned. The Bible says, “Then Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his place, and strengthened himself against Israel” (2Chronicles 17:1). At that time, Ahab reigned over Israel and he led Israel further into idolatrous sin. Therefore, it was right for Jehoshaphat to oppose Ahab and Israel. Yet, later, Jehoshaphat allied himself with Ahab and the Lord rebuked him for it.
We want peace and unity, but not at any price, because we do not want to align ourselves with the enemies of God, but we have to oppose them with the hope that standing against sin will bring them over to the side of Christ.
