BENEDICTION
SERMON: “Come to the Waters of Grace” - 2 Kings 5:1-14

What do we see when we come to the waters of grace?

1. The Need of Every Person

2. The Sovereignty of God

3. The Invitation of Grace

God’s work is giving grace—our work is receiving it.
APPLICATION QUESTIONS:

1. Naaman was a man of great success, a mighty warrior, and highly regarded by the king of Aram. He was a picture of a man who ‘had it all’, and yet there was present in his life a potentially fatal ‘but’ (see v. 1). What was his ‘but’? Why is this such an appropriate picture of our own lives and the reality of the sickness of sin that all are stricken with?
2. A favorite theme in Scripture is the use of “unlikely instruments.” Explain how this is illustrated in our text and the irony of God’s use of a little slave girl in Naaman’s life. Review the following texts and describe how they also illustrate this principle: Exodus 4:2-5, 15-17; 7:8-12, 14-20; 17:5-12; Judges 15:14-17; John 6:1-14; 1 Corinthians 1:20-25.
3. What are lessons we can learn about the little slave girl and her faith in the Living God? Read these texts as you respond: Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalm 78:2-8; Matthew 5:16, 44; 2 Corinthians 5:20.
4. We read in this text of some very real and present enemies of the free gift of grace that God offers to us. These would include pride, works righteousness, and a misunderstanding of the simplicity of God’s grace. What are “enemies” you have experienced, and how were they overcome? Why is Isaiah 55:1-2 such a precious and appropriate picture of God’s grace?
5. What is a single take-away for you and how will your life be changed by today’s sermon?
