Rahab, the prostitute

Rahab330402211Rahab’s story is found in the book of Joshua Chapter 2. She is an outcast rejected by society.  Rahab is mentioned 8 times in the Bible. Five times her profession of prostitution is attached to her name. “The prostitute” is not the greatest title to be remembered for. It seems that God wants us to think “prostitute” when  we think about Rahab. In her livelihood we see the given up of any hope of ever turning her life around, but by her faith we can see how God can turn shame into glory in one shining moment of redemption!   She took a big risk, chose the God of Israel, acted on her faith and she was saved and blessed by God. One of the great lessons we can learn from her life is that “WHAT YOU ARE TODAY IS NOT WHAT YOU CAN BE, BY GOD’S GRACE, TOMORROW”.
