Eric McLaren 02-07-2021 // Naaman the Syrian, and a Young Slave Girl - 2 Kings 5:1-15

February 7, 2021

Naaman is described as the captain of the army of the king of Assyria in Israel.  He was respected and victorious, and a leper.

Leprosy in Scripture is often a picture of sin.  Join us as we look at Naaman and consider the lessons from this terrible disease and what it teaches us about the character and impact of sin.

But this story also includes a  young slave girl, captured during an Assyrian raid into Israel and put into service of Naaman's wife.  Consider the impact of this unnamed girl who pleaded with her mistress on behalf of Naaman, seeking his benefit.  Like this young girl, we have the opportunity to impact those around us with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thank you for listening to today's message.  May the Lord bless you through the teaching of His Word.
