Not Disqualified By Your Past

Re:Verse reading–Joshua 2 (day two) “…for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on earth below.” vs. 11

“They entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there.” vs. 1

If you were to look at Rahab’s past would you think that there would be anything in her life that prepared her to be such an ambassador for the Lord? Hers is the kind of life that is often used as an illustration of sin and destruction. But doesn’t it also illustrate that God can change a heart of corruption into a vessel of service and love? The idea that we have to come from purity into purity is folly. We are broken, ugly, and involved in lifestyles that if brought to light would be our undoing, but if we are witness to God’s redeeming love, like Rahab, we too can experience his forgiveness, his power, and his promise. Stop looking backwards, look outside those walls of Jericho.
