“Naaman the Leper”
We’ve spent the last two weeks in Isaiah 6 as Tyler led us to consider the holiness of God and the calling he gives to his people. I hope you’ll listen to those two sermons if you haven’t yet.
This week, we’ll be in 2 Kings 5, the account of a very important (but leprous) military leader...from Syria. Despite his greatness, Naaman is powerless to heal himself or even buy the power of someone who can, but the faithful witness of a “little girl” and the humbling wisdom of Naaman’s servants yields restoration and true spiritual wholeness for this enemy of Israel. It’s an incredibly rich narrative tucked away in Kings, and I hope you’ll take a moment to read the chapter through before Sunday.
