Naaman

June 25, 2020

Word of the day: 14 [Naaman] went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy. 2 Kings 5:14 NIV

Discussion Board: Leprosy is a skin disease. There are questions about if it is contagious or not. According to the CDC, someone can get the disease by droplets from coughing and sneezing. Here is a fact about Leprosy; nobody want to be around you. Why did Naaman go down to the Jordan river and dip himself seven times? God told him to. It is a magical number. Naaman had faith and did what God asked of him. Leprosy disease is considered unclean. When he dipped himself seven times, he was clean. Jesus paid the price for us with no restrictions, love, and forgiveness. This act that God did reminds us of why we trust his love and grace.

Prayer: Father, thank you for the reminder of why we trust and love you with grace. I pray that we can continue to read and understand your miracles’ parables to help us be better in our faith. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
