I Kings 8:60 “…so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other.”

In this Chapter of I Kings Solomon is dedicating the Temple he has built to the Lord. But it tells us in verse 55 that he then stood and blessed the people, reminding them that all other nations would be watching them and their faithfulness towards God. Further warning them, “But your hearts must be fully committed to the Lord our God, to live by His decrees and obey His commands, as at this time. (I Kings 8:61) Other nations might of been impressed by the magnificence of the Temple, but Solomon reminded the people it would be their total obedience and trust in their God that would make the real difference.
