Favorite Verse: “So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.” -2 Kings 5:14
Why this verse is important to Emmett:
Naaman was like a general in the army and had a bad disease on his skin, and he was going to give all of these gifts to Elisha to heal him, but Elisha didn’t take the gifts. Instead Elisha told him to go wash himself in the river seven times, anyway, and his disease was gone…it totally disappeared. I like the story because anything is possible with God. He can heal you.
