There was a certain man, A commander in the army of Aram who had leprosy. A slave girl captured on a raid told him that a prophet in Samaria could cure him. Naaman went to the King of Israel with a letter from his own king. When Elisha heard about it and heard that the King had torn his clothes he told the King to send Naaman to him. Elisha instructed Naaman by messenger to wash himself in the Jordan seven times and that he would be cured. At first Naaman went away angry but his servants convinced him to do as the prophet directed--and he was cured! His skin was like that of a newborn and he became a believer and worshipper of God. 2 Kings 5 So, was Naaman cured by grace--or by works? If grace, then who was it that bestowed grace upon him? The prophet? God? If you say that it was by works he was cured of leprosy; then who did the works? Was it Naaman who cured himself--by works- or was it a work either 1)of the Prophet or 2) of God?
