Are You Willing? February 15, 2009 Are You Willing? 2 Kings 5:1-14 Sermon Synopsis: Has any one ever approached you with the question, “Would you like to try something new?” If so, what were your first thoughts? Were you suspicious or adventurous? Sometimes our response depends on how much we trust the one making the offer or on how desperate we are at the time. Leprosy Bible times was feared as much then as AIDS is today. Naaman had it. He was a mighty general but had no power over the disease. Was he desperate enough to trust word of a captive slave girl, a prophet he never saw, a method he had never tried? Was he willing? Yes, and he was healed. There were people with leprosy in Jesus’ day who were just as desperate as Naaman. Mark 1:40-45 tells about one asking Jesus if he were willing to heal him. The man found that Jesus was willing. Jesus is still willing to heal men and women, boys and girls of the most dreaded disease that plagues humanity, sin. The consequences of this disease lead to death, eternal separation from the blessings of God. The question is “Are you willing to be healed?” God has a plan to heal all who are willing to come to Jesus. Scripture References in NIV: 2 Kings 5:1-14; Mark 1:40-45; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27.
