Outstanding Faith

Rahab rises from the rubble of Jericho and a life of harlotry to being a “hero of faith” on the Hebrews 11 roster. Her turning point began with the visit to Jericho by Joshua’s two spies.

Rahab not only welcomed the spies, she also hid and protected them. This was at the risk of her own life.

When Rahab got a moment to speak to these Israelites, she passionately expressed her faith in the Almighty God of Israel. “For the Lord your God, He is the God in heaven above and on earth beneath.” She also asked the spies to swear by the name of this God that they would spare her life and that of her family.

God’s grace and favor were immediately extended. This lady, up to that point, was not known for her reputable behavior. But she started an adventure that would not only lead to her marriage to Salmon but also to becoming the mother of Boaz and then entering the genealogy of our Lord Jesus Christ. What a priceless treasure she received!

Our God is still extending His grace and favor to men and women whose outstanding faith would put them in the ‘hall of fame’ of His Kingdom. Will we be among them?
