WHAT DOES IT SAY?

This week, we’re looking at Joshua 2 and Joshua 6

The stories of the God of the Israelites have spread to the cities surrounding them and have gotten to Rahab. She decides to go all-in based on what she has heard about God.
WHAT IS THE CONTEXT?

Matthew 1: Genealogies are put in place because the people matter to the story

What stories continue to be told about Rahab? She comes up in Hebrews and in James: “In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.”

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Faith without deeds is dead. Faith does not exist as just an idea in your mind. It is only faith when it’s put into action.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR ME?
Even if you feel like you have no options, like the doors are closed – you can still be righteous. You can still have faith that God has a plan and a purpose for you, even if it feels like a dark season in your life.
