What A Story

Hebrews 11:31 is a powerful reminder that God calls and chooses the sinner to be part of his grand story. It was Rahab the prostitute who hid the Hebrew spies whom Joshua sent into Jericho in Joshua chapter 2. Hebrews Chapter 11 is full of stories of people who simply believed God and his word while showing it through their actions. Rahab was not part of God's people; in all cases, she was an outcast and a sinner. Yet Rahab in Joshua 2 said God's name 4 times. If we read our bibles, we will see she said "LORD" in verses 9,10,11,12. But what she was truly saying in those verses was not simply LORD, But the name God spoke to Moses, Yahweh, or "I AM". She knew and understood that Yahweh was the one true God she knew that Yahweh was the Great I Am and understood that nothing could stop him. She knew his name personally.

Faith rests on who God is, what He has done, and what He will do. Rahab knew God dried up the Red Sea she knew how God had given them victory in many battles before they Got to Jericho, and she put her Faith in the "Great I AM" to save her. What comes next is even more amazing.

Rahab married a Hebrew man named Salmon and they had a son whose name was Boaz, Boaz was the father of Obed, Obed was the father of Jesse, and Jesse was the father of King David. Matthew 1:5 Rahab the great-great Grandmother of King David which also means she is in the line of Christ. Who you were does not define you what you do for Christ is what defines you. Though the Bible is no longer being written God is still making a grand story and you can be a part of it. What will your story be?
