Re:Verse reading–2 Kings 5 (day one)
“Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.”–Acts 16:31.
“Abraham believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness.”–Genesis 15:6
“Go and wash in the Jordan seven times and your flesh shall be restored.”–2 Kings 5:10
If we are honest, sometimes we miss God because we overcomplicate the path. Like Naaman in 2 Kings 5, we expect something hard, something that requires much effort. (See his protest in v 11.) But the seed and center of salvation is always simple faith. Obedience that rises from it. We are invited by the Spirit to a new certainty that–that God is good and worthy to be trusted. Nothing hard or complicated. Childlike and pure. Believe Him (rather than yourself) you will be saved.
“His word shall not fail you–He promised. Believe Him and all will be well.”–Helen Lemmel. Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus.
But sometimes people miss salvation because it seems too easy.
