2 KINGS 5:14-17
My Beloved, when we are plunged into the waters of baptism our leprous sin filled souls are washed clean and we are made a new creation once more. Just like Naaman the leper who after bathing in the waters of the Jordan was healed of leprosy and his skin was restored and became as soft as that of a child and he was cleansed. He then returned to the prophet to give thanks and offer gifts which the prophet rightly refused for it was God who had worked the miracle.
Naaman experienced first hand the power of the one true God and believed in him. He returned home with the gift of faith and he resolved to offer put away the false idols he had worshiped and to worship the one true God all the days of his life.
2 TIMOTHY 2:8-13
11 This statement is true:
If we have died with him, we shall also live with him;
12 If we endure with him, we shall reign with him;
If we deny him, he will also deny us;
13 If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful for he cannot deny himself.
God is faithful - He can be nothing else for He cannot go against His nature.
We can never run out of songs of praise to God for His blessings fall upon us without ceasing.
