Rahab's Faith

Joshua 2:1-24

Read Text: Joshua 2:1

As Joshua prepared to lead the people of God into their promised land. Part of that preparation involved gathering information on the city of Jericho. Jericho was a city that covered about 8 acres. It had and inner and outer wall with a total thinness of 18' and was 30' high. Upon this wall houses had been built, and Rahab the harlot lived in one of them. Joshua, who had been one of the spies sent by Moses, now sends two spies to view the land secretly. Secretly because he knew what had happened at Kadesh-Barnea when the 10 spies returned with an unfavorable report. He didn't want a repeat of the events that led to them wandering in the wilderness for 40 years!

I. The Spies Sent Forth v1

II. Rahab's Faith And Works v2-14

III. The Spies' Escape and Assurance v15-24

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

What obstacles are in our way? We enter into victory by an active and vibrant faith. Each of us are trophies of God's amazing grace! Rahab would become David's great grandmother. Who could have imagined such a thing? Only by God's grace!
