In 2 Kings 5:1-14, we are introduced to Naaman, a commander in the king's army. Naaman had great power, prestige, and was a mighty man of valor. But he was also a leper. Similarly, sin today is like leprosy of the soul. It does not respect status and cannot be cured by great success. Discover Naaman's response to the unexpected cure, and God's solution for today's spiritual leprosy.

Alistair Begg says that in recognizing this, the believer can face death with composure, celebrate life to the fullest, deal with disappointment without losing hope, and rest in God's unfailing goodness.
