Unlikely Grace

Most of us are drawn to stories where the unlikely and the unexpected takes place. Whether it’s the unlikely love story, the unexpected act of courage and sacrifice, or some other twist we just weren’t anticipating. For whatever reason these stories just grab our attention.

We're in 2 Kings 5:1-19, a story where we meet an unlikely recipient of God’s grace and an unexpected hero – both of whom give us a wonderful picture of how we receive and live out the gospel.
