“My father, had the prophet told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” – 2 Kings 5:13
Signs. We want signs for our belief. 2 Kings today, Naaman refuses at first to go down and wash to cure his leprosy. He is looking for some external sign of divine power. In the Gospel of John, we read how Jesus came performing many signs and yet the people did not believe.
Lord, give us eyes to see and ears to hear, that the many proofs about us will guide our hearts to a true faith. Not a faith built on proofs, but a faith built on the promise in God’s Word, of salvation through Jesus Christ. Let this be our greatest joy.
May God bless you.
