2 Kings 5:1-15; 19		  NAAMAN: THE BIG DIPPER
Intro:  This morning, I want to introduce you to a man named Naaman and an event that 
forever changed his life.  I want to tell you the story of how this great man humbled himself 
before the command of the Lord and received grace, healing and peace.  In the process, I 
want to share with you how you too can have the things that Naaman received.  I may be 
speaking to people today who have never truly given their hearts to the Lord, people who for
 one reason or the other have lived their lives without ever coming into a right relationship with 
Almighty God.  I pray that as we consider this text together, your hearts will be stirred up and
 you will have a desire to some to know the God of the Bible.  Let's look together at Naaman:
 The Big Dipper.

  I.  v.1					A SICK MAN
    A.  A Captain - He was a Leader among the people of Syria.
    B.  A Conqueror - He was a Lifter of the people of Syria.
    C.  A Castaway - He was a Leper, separated from the people.  (Ill. Even the 
          slaves would not have traded places with Naaman!  Regardless of how great a man 
          Naaman was, he had the problem of leprosy, Ill. The word "but" in verse 1!  
         (Ill. Leprosy is a type of sin!)  (Ill. Good mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children, 
         etc - All have that one little "but" that mars their lives!)  (Ill. All are sinners before God 
         - Rom. 3:23; Gal. 3:22)  As sinners, men are castaway's from the presence of God - 
         John 3:36.  (Ill. You may feel fine today, but if you are lost in your sins, your are a 
         spiritual leper and regardless of your greatness, you are headed to Hell!)

 II.  v.2-3				  A SOLD OUT MAIDEN
    A.  She Had Concern For Naaman - (Ill. She didn't hate this man who had captured her, 
          she only saw his need - What a lesson for Christians - Ill. John 4:35)  (Ill. Many 
         probably questioned the wisdom of God in allowing this young girl to be carried away 
         as a slave.  He had her here at the perfect time to accomplish His work.)  Thank God 
         for people with a heart for others.
    B.  She Had Confidence In God - She knew what God could do!  Thank God for 
         those who believe in a BIG God!  Too many have a little, weak, God!  (Luke 
    C.  She Had A Confession For God - (She spoke out of her convictions.  She was 
          unafraid and she had a bold, simple testimony!) (Ill. She was a light for the Lord in 
         character and conduct in the midst of a dark world.!) Thank God for those who are 
         willing to say a word for the glory of the Lord!

III.  4-15, 19			A SIMPLE MESSAGE	
    A.  v. 8-10  The Lord's Man
	1.  v. 8  A Sudden Call - Ill. John 6:44  (This is how it begins!)
	2.  v. 10  A Simple Command - 7 dips, and 7 dips alone would heal Naaman!  
             Ill. The Gospel, there are not many ways to Heaven, there is only one, John 
            14:6; Acts 16:31.  (Ill. The 2 roads - Matt. 7:13-14)
    B.  v. 4-7, 11-13  The Leper's Mistake	
	1.  v.4-7  He Went To The Wrong Person - (Ill. The king was powerful, but 
              there were limits to his effectiveness.) Only One can save - Acts 4:12.
        2.  v. 5  He Carried The Wrong Price - (Ill. About $500.000)  Salvation is 
             free! (Isa. 55:1; Rev. 22:17)  The price is faith!
       3.  v. 11  He Had The Wrong Plan - (Ill. "I thought"; "I thought's" have sent 
           millions to Hell - Pro. 16:25!)
      4.  v. 12  He Had The Wrong Perception - (Ill. He thought to change God's 
          plan!  Naaman thought his way was superior to God's!  Ill. He found fault 
         with God's plan - Ill. The cross - Rom. 9:33; 1 Cor. 1:18!)
     5.  Millions, every day make the same mistakes that Naaman made.  They 
         think they can work it out, do it better, get there on their own, can formulate    
         a better plan.  It is all the devil's lie!  Ill. Pro. 16:25!!!
    C.  v. 14-15, 19  The Lord's Miracle
	1.  v. 13  Naaman's Servants - They said two things that made him think:
	     a.  "You would do a great thing!"  b.  "What have you got to lose?"
	2.  v. 14  Naaman's Submission - When Naaman decided to try God's plan, 2 
               things happened that produced his salvation:
	      a.  He obeyed God - Naaman dipped, you must believe!
	      b.  He was changed - 2 Cor. 5:17 - Ill. Not the dipping, not the Jordan, it 
                   was the power of Almighty God that changed this leper into a clean, 
                  whole man.
	3.  v.15, 19  Naaman's Salvation - When Naaman did it God's way, he got 
              more than his health.  He got a spiritual dip also!
             a.  v. 15  Notice his Confession - Rom. 10:9
             b.  v, 19  Notice his Assurance - John 6:47  (Ill. Contrast verse 15 with 
                  verse 11 - "I thought" versus "I know!"  What a difference a dip in the right 
                 water will make!

Conc:  You know, all that separates the sinner from eternal life in Jesus Christ is a willingness 
to do things God's way!  When we become willing to come the way God has laid out for us, 
then we will receive eternal life through Jesus Christ.  Naaman was changed because he did it 
the Lord's way.  If you will come, that is the way it will work for you also!  (Ill. Pro. 9:12)
