Lie after Lie after Lie: A Study in 2 Kings 5

AuthorHouse, 2 de nov. 2007 - 104 pàgines

Lie after Lie after Lie is a contemporary and insightful look at a familiar Old Testament chapter, 2 Kings 5. Through twenty succinct chapters, Lie after Lie after Lie tells the story of Naaman, a soldier in desperate need of help; Elisha, the prophet, who was willing to help, and Gehazi, a shrewd servant, who decided to help himself.

Through Naaman you will learn that God is available to help everyone laden with the leprous condition of sin (Romans 3:23). Through Elisha you will discover that the Lord is willing and able to work through His under-shepherd to bless His people and deliver them from the infirmity of sin (Jeremiah 3:15). Through Gehazi you will find out that God sees and knows all about our evil-doings. And yet, He is still willing and able to forgive and cleanse, if we are willing to repent and obey.

With only twenty seven verses, 2 Kings 5 contains a number of important lessons for today’s living. The chapter teaches that we all have both positive and negative qualities, strengths and weaknesses that affect our lives.

In addition, 2 Kings 5 clearly illustrate that following good advice will lead to blessings; remember to turn to God in times of trouble; God doesn’t operate according to our dictates; trust those who represent God; accepting gifts is not always wise; secret sins are constantly on display before God; and the wages of sin are costly. These are just a few of the lessons taught in a chapter that is familiar to many.
