And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.
i)Relationship with Him (“that they
would be with Him”)
ii)Evangelism (“that He could send them
out to preach”)
iii)Flowing with the Holy Spirit (“to have
authority to cast out the demons”)
Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper. And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.
And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy. And one went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel. And the king of Syria said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment. And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy. And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.
And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.
So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage. 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.
And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant. But he said, As the LORD liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take it; but he refused. And Naaman said, Shall there not then, I pray thee, be given to thy servant two mules’ burden of earth? for thy servant will henceforth offer neither burnt offering nor sacrifice unto other gods, but unto the LORD.
i)By the faithfulness of God’s people is crucial for His will to be done on earth
ii)By Seek spiritual revelation first, physical and material blessings flow after
iii)By facing our own distorted and wrong beliefs in order to accept the Truth of God
James, Christians should count it all joy, when they go through difficulties because it tests their faith. He said when faith is tested it produces steadfastness which makes people perfect and complete, and lack nothing. He taught that if anybody lacks wisdom, that person must ask God. He assured that God would give it to him/her without holding back, because God is generous with such things. James wrote that whoever asked from God must ask in faith, not doubting because a person who doubts is like the wave of the sea, that is, driven and tossed by the wind. That person would not receive anything from the Lord. James also taught that the lowly brother must be allowed to boast in his exaltation and the rich also in his humiliation, because they will pass away like the grass or flower.
Just as the beauty of the flower can wither away under the Sun, so also the rich man would perish away while pursuing his business. James wrote that if anyone was suffering, that person should pray and if any was cheerful that person, that person should sing praise. He said if any was sick, that person should call the elders of the church to pray over him, anoint him with oil in the name of the lord and the prayer of faith would save that sick person. The Lord will raise him up and if he had committed sins, the Lord will forgive him. James told the members to confess their sins to one another and pray for them to be healed. James taught that the prayers of a righteous man has power and is effective.
i)Lack of consistency
ii)lack of concentration
iii)lack of repentance from personal sins
