2 Kings 5:13-14 – And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
Consider this; there’s a certain amount of difficulty that comes with being a disciple; we must work to overcome temptations, trials and afflictions as we journey on this path. This is, however, inherently different from the many ways we find to complicate our walk. Understand, The Lord hasn’t called us to do something beyond our ability. We don’t have to waste time trying to discover some hidden path to righteousness. our salvation isn’t based on our ability to find something elaborate to impress the Lord; rather, it is based on our obedience. Simple.
To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice – 1 Samuel 15:22
