I. Doing Right in the Sight of the Lord (2 Kings 18:3)

Our exploration commences with Hezekiah's foundational commitment to do what was right in the sight of the Lord. In 2 Kings 18:3, we read that he removed the high places, smashed the idols, and tore down the Asherah poles. This radical departure from his father Ahaz's ways marked a turning point in Judah's history.

II. Hezekiah’s reign was radically different from that of his father Ahaz (Isa. 2:6-8)

The second dimension of Hezekiah's greatness is revealed through the contrast with his father's reign. Isaiah 2:6-8 highlights the stark difference between the reigns of Ahaz and Hezekiah. Where Ahaz turned to idols and foreign alliances, Hezekiah sought the Lord and trusted His guidance.

  • His was not a “word only” type of obedience. He practiced it
  • He would become like “…David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will” (Acts 13:22)
  • This was a cause of great joy in Jerusalem (2 Chron. 30:26)

III. Hezekiah made a complete restoration (2 Kgs. 18:4).

The third facet of Hezekiah's life is seen in his dedication to restoring the worship of the Lord. In 2 Kings 18:4, we witness his commitment to tearing down idolatry and purifying the worship of God in the land. This act of restoration illustrates Hezekiah's desire to bring the nation back to God's ways.

Hezekiah was a man of action.

  • “High places” were places of idolatry.
  • Cut down the “groves” (wooden images -NKJV)
  • Broke the brazen serpent (Num. 21:6-9)

When anyone at anytime decides to “go back to the word of God”, there will be a need to cut off or destroy things that interfere

IV. Trusting in the Lord (2 Kings 18:5)

The fourth aspect of Hezekiah's greatness is his unwavering trust in the Lord. In 2 Kings 18:5, we learn that Hezekiah trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so much so that there was none like him among all the kings of Judah before or after him. His trust in God's sovereignty and faithfulness was the foundation of his reign.

Hezekiah was a great man because he trusted in God (Prov. 3:5-6)

V. Holding Fast to the Lord (2 Kings 18:6)

The final dimension of Hezekiah's life is his commitment to holding fast to the Lord. In 2 Kings 18:6, we read that he clung to the Lord and did not depart from following Him. This unyielding dedication kept him anchored amidst challenges and uncertainties.
