We don’t know all the details, but we know that by the time Rahab hid the spies, she’d become a believer. Her words in Joshua 2:10,11 leave no doubt.
This prostitute raised in the evil city of Jericho wasn’t even born when the Red Sea event occurred; but she believed the story when she heard it! And she gave up her lifestyle and her country to follow God.
God isn't looking for people with a perfect past—He’s looking for people who believe in Him and are willing to follow.
I've made the decision to follow Jesus, but sometimes I let things in the past hold me back. Today I'm praying for "Rahab faith." Will you join me?
