“She said, ‘According to your words, so be it.’ So she sent them away, and they departed; and she tied the scarlet cord in the window” (Joshua 2:21).

When new to the faith there is a hunger for instruction and a desire to be obedient. Rahab followed diligently the explicit directives of God’s spies (2:17-20). Her faithful obedience resulted in the deliverance of her entire household and brought about a life that they would have never before imagined for themselves (Joshua 6:25). Obedience to the day brings the blessing of a never expected future.
