    Naaman’s Servants Save the Day
    2 Kings 5:1-17 Why did an un-named slave girl share hopeful words about her master’s condition of leprosy?
    • She knew something Naaman did not.
    • She was not overcome by bitterness and self-pity.
    • She had developed a trustworthy reputation.
    • She had a spiritual boldness.
    • She had an unwavering faith.
    What made Naaman listen to his servants advice when they had no more information than he did?
    • They were respectful.
    • They were logical and level-headed.
    • They cared about his condition.
    What opportunity has God given you to share words of life and hope?  Have you cultivated a relationship that will encourage them to listen?

    A Father’s Honest Faith
    A Father’s Honest Faith - Mark 9:14-27  Immediately after the Transfiguration, Jesus came down the mountain and encountered a father seeking help for his son who suffered from dangerous and debilitating seizures caused by an evil spirit.  We learn some valuable lessons from this un-named parent.
    • In the midst of fear, sorrow and confusion, he came to Jesus.
    • He came expectantly, though guardedly.
    • He came boldly, though humbly.
    The father’s response to Jesus is one we all can learn from:  “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief.”  It is an honest confession of spiritual weakness and imperfect faith—one which opens our lives to the power of God.

    The Forgotten Four Remember Their People
    The Forgotten Four Remember Their People  An Act of Desperation (2 Kings 7:3-4) We live in a nation and a world full of desperate people.  Sometimes we feel like those who are forgotten and unheard, as well.  The Joyful Discovery (7:5-8) We are faced with a decision whether to be selfish or generous with the blessings we have received.  The Right Decision (7:9-11) Jesus teaches us the right thing to do, but we must make the decision to be obedient.  What kind of citizens will we be of our nation, the world, and the kingdom of God?

    “Come, all you who are thirsty,     come to the waters; and you who have no money,     come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk     without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread,     and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,     and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me;     listen, that you may live."
