Scripture: Hebrews 11:30-31
Hebrews 11:30-31 says, “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days. By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.” Who gets mentioned in the New Testament? Here in Faith’s Hall of Fame, we find Rahab the harlot. She was greatly honored by God with her faith and she became an example for all generations to learn from and to follow. What does that tell us about who God chooses? It makes no difference what a person’s profession, lifestyle or sins if they say yes to God in a circumstance, a situation or in a moment for which they have been chosen. When we are moving through life, will we take the time and share Jesus with those who are not whom the world deems worthy to talk to? How far will we go in endangering our reputation to obey Christ? What do we know about God? God loves everyone but chooses the lowly. We are called to have the humility to extend all the honor of knowing and serving the King. I trust we will be faithful to that call. Who knows whether we are near to a ‘Rahab’ whose great faith will be rewarded by great honor from OUR Most High God!
