We Do Not Well

2Ki 7:9 Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.

I remember Pastor Carl Sexton preach on this verse on the first Missions Conference at Ambassador Fundamental Baptist Church. This is about the lepers who broke out the the good news to the Israelites that the Syrian camp was abandoned by all the soldiers and can now be spoiled. The Israelites had been suffering from hunger and famine.

 While enjoying the food, drink, garments, and other items left by the Syrians, the lepers realized their mistake. They cried out, “We do not well.” We also do not well if we have something good to share to others but instead we keep it to ourselves.

Salvation is the greatest gift, the greatest manifestation of God’s grace in us yet many times we do not well. We do not put in the confidence and willingness to share to others this good tiding.

May we not hold our peace when God gives us the opportunity to share to others our faith in God.
