Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful story of Naaman the Syrian general, who was also a leper. Thank You that by God's grace, he was used to bring many souls to a knowledge of the goodness and grace of God, when he believed the word of his little servant girl, obeyed the instruction of Elisha the prophet and trusted the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to heal him. How we praise You that it is not Your will that any should perish but that all should come to a knowledge of You - and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent to be our sacrifice for sin. Help me to be like that little servant girl and be ready and willing to tell others that Jesus died for their sin, that He rose again and is seated on the right hand of the Father and is coming again in glory to judge the living and the dead. Thank You that whosoever believes on Him will not perish but have everlasting life. AMEN.

“Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.”
(2 Kings 5:1)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many lessons we can learn from the beautiful story of Naaman the leper; the gentle little maid who offered wise advice and the need to recognise our own inadequacy; our poverty; our pride and our inability save ourselves. Thank You for the simple gospel message, where through faith... we can be washed by the blood of the Lamb and cleansed of all our sin - through faith in Him. Help us to humble ourselves before Your mighty hand, like this great Syrian general, who responded to the word of the Lord; obeyed His voice  and was made whole. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?”
(2 Kings 5:13)
