King Josiah followed a father and grandfather who were wicked and ruled over a depraved kingdom, worshipping other gods and involved in shameless pagan practices. But Josiah looked past them back to King David and followed the ways of God. As such, he swam against the cultural current of his day.
It is that way now. There is a current that flows away from God, with people bent on unknowingly bringing about their own destruction, as the Israelites did and were swept away by the Assyrians and Babylonians.
If you’re flowing with the cultural current and finding no resistance, you’re going the wrong way. If you feel the current pushing against you because of your obedience to Jesus, you’re going the right way.
