Welcome to Messiah! We continue our summer playlist from the Old Testament by looking at the story of Naaman’s healing from leprosy. Naaman was instructed to wash in the Jordan River and he would be cleansed. He couldn’t believe it. Seemed too good to be true. When it comes to matters of faith, many mistakenly feel the same way. Our song of the day, Take Me to the River, not only points us to the healing of Naaman, but also to the One who heals us from sin through faith received in baptism.
Old Testament Lesson: 2nd Kings 5:1-19 (The Healing of Naaman)
