Rahab is one of my favorite characters in the Bible because.......
- She was brave. She hid the spies. She knew that was the right thing to do - and she did it, even though it was a dangerous choice. Her life and her family's lives were at risk because of her bold move - and she made it anyway!
- She was chosen. She wasn't an Israelite. She was a foreigner, but God used her for His rescue plan of the Israelites.
- She was part of the lineage of Jesus. God not only used her to help rescue the Israelites - but He made her a part of the great rescue plan for all of us. She was a great, great,.........grandmother to Jesus! She was part of the family Jesus was born into.
Wow.........how I want to be brave, bold, and usable in God's plan today!
