 Pastor Steve's Monthly Message         

  May 2015

 

 

Last month we heard about God’s recipe for overcoming pride in the healing story of Naaman (in the Old Testament book of 2 Kings). Almost lost in the story is the means by which God worked so powerfully… 

Naaman is introduced to us first…”Now Naaman was the commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded…he was a valiant sol-dier.” (2 Kings 5:1) He’s clearly a “big man on campus” who was brought to his knees by one small problem…He. Had. Leprosy. 

We are then introduced to another character in the story…a young girl who had been taken cap-tive from Israel by the ‘raiders of Aram’, and who served Naaman’s wife.’ This young girl said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria. Surely he would cure him of his leprosy!” (2 Kings 5:2-3) 

Rev. Jessica LaGrone, in “Set Apart”, notes that there couldn’t be any greater contrast between these two characters. Powerful warrior…little, young girl. Commander…servant. “Naaman, a great man in the sight of the king”…victim of human trafficking who goes unnamed.
