Everyday Hero | Episode 4 | Rahab

kris pace : teaching PASTOR

It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed with the people in her city who refused to obey God. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies. 

Hebrews 11:31 

Then Joshua secretly sent out two spies from the Israelite camp. He instructed them, “Scout out the land on the other side of the Jordan River, especially around Jericho.” So the two men set out and came to the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there that night. 

Joshua 2:1 

What would cause this _______________________ to risk her life for these men? 

Before the spies went to sleep that night, Rahab went up on the roof to talk with them. “I know the Lord has given you this land,” she told them. “We are all afraid of you. Everyone in the land is living in terror. For we have heard how the Lord made a dry path for you through the Red Sea when you left Egypt. For the Lord your God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below. 

Joshua 2:8-11 

“Now swear to me by the Lord that you will be kind to me and my family since I have helped you. Give me some guarantee that when Jericho is conquered, you will let me live, along with my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all their families.” 

Joshua 2:12-13 

Hessed is a covering. It means _______________________

“We offer our own lives as a guarantee for your safety,” the men agreed. “If you don’t betray us, we will keep our promise and be kind to you when the Lord gives us the land.” 

Joshua 2:14 

Then, since Rahab’s house was built into the town wall, she let them down by a rope through the window. And she sent them on their way, leaving the scarlet rope hanging from the window. 

Joshua 2:15 

So Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute and her relatives who were with her in the house, because she had hidden the spies Joshua sent to Jericho. And she lives among the Israelites to this day. 

Joshua 6:25

"I have the opportunity to build relationships with girls/women who need a safe place and someone to care. What could be better than that?"
