The end of the means

The God who designs the end devises the means to the end.
Text: 2 Kings 5:1-15

God doth devise means... 2 Samuel 14:14

And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. Luke 4:27

The means to the end.
  • The successful soldier’s leprosy, 5:1
  • The captive maid’s wish, 5:2-4
  • The Syrian king’s blessing, 5:5
  • The Israelite king’s despair, 5:6-7
  • The bold prophet’s messages, 5:8-10
  • The Syrian captain’s anger, 5:11-12
  • The wise servants’ advice, 5:13
  • The Syrian captain’s cure, 5:14

The end of the means.
  • The Syrian captain’s knowledge and faith, 5:15
