Speaker: Lukus Counterman - 1 Peter 5:5 says, y\"God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.\" In the account Naaman and Elisha in 2 Kings 5, we see this truth come to bear. Naaman, the pagan lager came to realize that he could not buy God's salvation, demand it by his own power, or merit it by reputation and achievements. Nothing he have (like gold and silver) and nothing he had done (like great military victories) could impress God or put him in his debt. God's salvation is offered by grace alone. His gift costs us nothing..except our pride. So, if we want God's healing, then we need humility. If we want God's salvation, then we must submit to his word. May the Lord help us to consider our need for God's grace today.
