Hey guys! I hope that you’re having a wonderful week. My blog post was featured as a guest post on Ashtyn’s blog Through Her He Speaks . Read the beginning below and check out the rest on her blog!
As a Christian, I think that once we’re saved, we look at other people’s sins and feel like they could never be saved because they are in their sins too deep. Maybe a family member or an old friend is promiscuous, drug addict, porn addict and commits so many other sins. Before we were saved, we committed sins too, but we realized that we needed a Savior. We had faith that God was going to change us for the better.
Let’s take a look at a woman from the Bible, Rahab, a prostitute that had a changed heart for God. Rahab was a woman who indulged herself into any man that approached her. Rahab wanted to feel free and live her life with excitement and thrill. Like many young people today, she was tired of her parents telling her what to do. All parents want to do is protect their children from evil. Sadly, every child or adult can’t be protected from evil forever unless they have the spirit of Jesus.
Although Rahab may have been known as the harlot or prostitute, she became a changed woman when she protected Joshua’s two spies from the Amorites. The two spies that Rahab protected were men of God and on a mission to overthrow the enemies of His people. Rahab planned their protection and escape by sneaking them into her home. She spread flax (a blue-flowered plant that is used for its seed) on her roof and used a scarlet cord. The spies were calling for desperate measures as they knew that the Amorite pursuers were onto their plan.
