In this week’s message in the Hero series, we talked about a woman named Rahab. Although she was a harlot, get this; she ended up in God’s “Hall of Faith!”
Rahab and all of Jericho had been hearing about the God of Israel. So when faced with a decision to hide the Israelite spies or to expose them to the king’s guards, she covered for them and sent the guards on a wild goose chase.
In exchange for this act of kindness, the spies agreed to save Rahab and her family. She had to take the men of God at their word. Think about it. All she had were the words from men she never met before, who served a God she didn’t know! Talk about Faith!
Rahab was an unbeliever. She didn’t even know God like you and I do, yet she chose to believe the words of those men. We can be like Rahab and believe Gods word too.
People may have judged Rahab for her moral failure, but God judged her for her faith. Rahab is an example of an everyday person who trusted God. She was a true biblical HERO.
I want to encourage you today to make the decision to believe what God says about you in His word. We are believers, we have the seed of God on the inside of us (1 John 3:9) – We are God’s Heroes!
Don’t miss this Wednesday as we hear from my mom, Pastor Sarah Marie and Pastor Dan as they will be tag teaming to bring a powerful word from God.
