The Grace & Mercy of God in the Old Testament

Elisha, Naaman & Ahab 2 Kings 5-8

This message looks at the grace and mercy of God towards his people’s enemies. This is a story that often get’s overlooked in reading the OT but prefigures the gospel work among the gentiles in the future. It’s a surprising theme to discover and its message is needed today. We too were once enemies:

Colossians 1:21-23: “This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. 22 Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.”
