Rahab Acknowledged God


Joshua 2: 10-11

Rahab told the spies that she and the people in Jericho had heard of what happened in Egypt.

They had heard of the two kings they had defeated along the way.

They had heard that they were coming to Jericho.

They had heard that the God of Israel was alive and powerful.

And they were frightened.

*******

What the people of Jericho had heard had become a message of judgment to them.

But it introduced Rahab to the true and living God!

In the end, the message had become a message of life to Rahab!

*******

So is the Gospel message.

It is the only message that can take the vilest sinner and make him a new creation.

*******

The Gospel is a message about God who loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins on a cross (John 3:16).

The Son of God suffered in terrible agony and shed His blood so that our sin debt might be paid.

Three days later he arose from the dead to bring eternal life to everyone who would call on His Name (1 Cor. 15:3-4).

*******

The Gospel is the only message that will bring eternal life to a person dead in sin (Romans :16)!

*******

Rahab acknowledged God!

So must we!

We must turn to God for Salvation!

Let us do it TODAY!
