Hebrews 11:31 (ESV)
Heroes of Faith
31 By faith Rahab the prostitute
did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.
Another short reading. It is interesting that Rahab makes the Heroes of Faith listing.
Rahab is a prostitute. Clearly not approved by the Lord, HOWEVER..... she helps out Joshua and helps hide his spies inside of Jericho until they can escape. God forgives those who repent, even prostitutes. She was a heroine for her role in
helping Joshua in the Battle of Jericho. She is also in the blood line of Jesus. It is comforting to me that God works through many people and forgives all who repent.
I pray: Oh Lord,
when you need to use me, help me to not be afraid, and to stand strong like Rahab. Protect me from all harm and danger. Amen.
