He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Grace To The Humble

2Ki 5:17 So Naaman said, “Then, if not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth; for your servant will no longer offer either burnt offering or sacrifice to other gods, but to the LORD

Naaman was so grateful that he came many miles out of his way to render thanks to the man of God, bringing a great sum as a gift. He came in chariots and horses, he came with gold and expensive clothing however with the transformation, he took loads of earth on two mules (donkeys) as a reminder of how low and dirty he was, and needed humility to be healed. He vowed to serve the Lord in His terms.

If you are not saved and think you are worthy of God’s attention, look yourself in the light of Naaman’s story and see your sin of pride and arrogance. You can’t come to the Lord in your terms. You must humble yourself, see your sins in the light of His laws, then repent, believe, and be saved. Wash and be clean. Php 3:7-9, “7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. …9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;”
