September 9, II Kings 5:9-12 Naaman the leper 3

We're looking at two characters today, or one and a half as we'll look at Naaman again tomorrow.  First today is the prophet, we don't get to see him as he doesn't even come out of his house, wonder why?  Perhaps it's a combination of things; healing of Naman must come from God, by not coming out no-one can claim that the prophet did anything. Whatever happens is between God and Naaman, it's always that way, it's just between you and God, no-one in between.  Naaman was a man in a position of power yet he must come to God, or at least to a representative of God and must submit that he is not in charge here. A hard thing for all of us to do. But he doesn't actually show humility, his attitude is that the prophet should have come out to meet him.  Here we see pride and anger in Naaman.  If I just have to wash then I can wash in my own rivers.  Naaman has the affliction that we all have before coming to Christ, and some of us still have remnants after coming.  He's a stiff necked man with authority problems.  Here's a principle to remember, it's not our sins that keep us from God, it's our stiffness to not confess and repent.
