For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. Hebrews 6:10 ESV
It matters not what we did before we came to know the Lord and love Him. Rahab gets grafted into the line of David following through to Yeshua our Messiah. When the Lord sends me out for an assignment, there may be others along the way that also need to hear the Gospel. It can be in a market, at a tourist site on a vacation, on a mission trip, on a airplane or anywhere. I can’t eliminate any opportunities. The spies were there to check out the land and staying with Rahab opened an incredible door of deliverance for her and her family.
“…13 that you will save alive my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who belong to them, and deliver our lives from death.”
Lord, thank You that I can ask this for my family for You are no respecter of persons! I can ask in faith knowing You answer my asking.
Immanuel: God is with us!
Paying attention to the Lord and His Word keep me from drifting away from Him. God shows Himself by signs, wonders and miracles and depositing gifts of the Holy Spirit on each believer, according to His will. The quote about putting everything under the feet of Lord Yeshua thus, our feet, is a quote from Psalm 8. This means the enemy has no power of death over us. We are only subjected to eternal life to those who believe! You Lord did the exchange of my sin for Your righteousness! You help me through every temptation for You know what it is to be tempted. Thank You Lord Yeshua for not falling short and overcoming on our behalf!
Meditate & Apply: I am to be ready in and out of season and can be by a continuous relationship with my Lord God. My past is just that and ALL sin and stupid choices have been cast into the sea of forgetfulness by my God. Serving my God opens incredible doors for me in Him. Thank You Lord for saving ALL of my family! Thank You God for making it that You are with me! I am not subject to death (separation from God) because of faith in the Lord Yeshua Messiah!
Yes. Rahab heard about God just like everyone us. UNlike everyone else, she chose Life, she chose God. Amen! We all have that choice. God is faithful to those who put their trust in Him.
Jesus is my example. His example delivered and saved me from eternal life separated from God. His example shows why He is Lord. I can follow His example and remain firm in Him. CELEBRATION!!!!
Yes, that is so true we must be ready to share the gospel wherever we go. People before task.
