UNEXPECTED SAINTS

02232015-Monday


“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.
