3 The Healing of Naaman Leprosy is a type or figure of SIN. ◦ Unclean – required cleansing (Lev. 14:1-2) So with sin (Acts 22:16; 1 John 1:9) ◦ Contagious – required separation (Lev. 13:45-46) So with sin (2 Cor. 6:17-7:1) ◦ Deadly – no cure except by God’s power So with sin (Eph. 2:1; Rom. 6:23)

4 The Healing of Naaman The little girl is a type of how the Good News is shared ◦ She had been torn from home, family and freedom (life of suffering and heartache) ◦ She was full of faith and hope in God (these could not be torn from her) ◦ She returned good for evil (felt compassion for the human condition) ◦ She served God in her youth (played an important part in Naaman being converted to the Lord)

5 The Healing of Naaman The way Naaman was healed is a type of the way God saves us. ◦ God’s prophet called Naaman to him for cleansing (5:8) – Jesus calls us – Matt. 11:28-29 ◦ Naaman sought out God’s prophet (5:9) – we seek Jesus – Matt. 7:7-8 ◦ Elisha didn’t speak to him directly but sent a messenger (5:10) – apostles – 2 Cor. 5:20-21 ◦ Naaman was told to do something which had no power in itself to heal him (5:10) – baptism – our faith in God’s working - Col. 2:11-13

6 The Healing of Naaman The way Naaman was healed is a type of the way God saves us. ◦ Naaman had preconceived ideas about how he should be healed (5:11-12). Prejudiced in favor of his own country. Became angry when told to do differently from what he thought. ◦ Only when Naaman finally complied with God’s command was he healed (5:13-14) ◦ Naaman stopped worshiping other gods and offered gifts (5:15-17)

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. Matt. 28:19

THE PURPOSE THE PURPOSE “For the forgiveness of sins” (Acts 2:38; 22:16); To be “Saved” (1 Pet. 3:21), To get “into Christ” (Rom 6:3-4; Gal. 3:27).

11 Were You “Sprinkled” as an Infant? Did You Think You Were Already Saved? Was it an “Outward Sign” of Your Salvation? Was it to Join a Local Church? Was it to Become a Member of a Denomination? Was it to receive Forgiveness, be Saved, enter Christ, and be added by Christ to His church? To become a Christian!

12 Hear the Gospel (Rom. 10:17) Believe that Jesus is the Son of God (Mk. 16:16) Repent of Your Sins (Acts 17:30) Confess Jesus as Lord (Rom. 10:9-10) Be Baptized for Forgiveness of Sins (Acts 2:38) Live Faithfully until You Die (Rev. 2:10) Will You Become A Christian?
