“Then Joshua the son of Nun sent two men as spies secretly from Shittim, saying, ‘Go, view the land, especially Jericho.’ So they went and came into the house of a harlot whose name was Rahab, and lodged there” (Joshua 2:1).

While some have sought cover-up Rahab’s unsavory past by arguing that she was an innkeeper instead of a harlot, such efforts are misguided for it reduces God’s merciful salvation into something based upon human goodness. No matter what your past, it stands as a declaration of the particular grace God bestowed upon you.
