Today we’ll get introduced to an unlikely character in the great hall of faith found in Hebrews chapter eleven. Verse 31 presents us with Rahab, a woman the author and the book of Joshua both describe as a prostitute. And yet, this woman of ill repute is listed as having had faith in God. In fact, it was her faith in God that kept the spies safe and her family alive. Faith isn’t tied to our spirituality or superior morality. It’s based on the reliability and reality of God. Rahab’s sinful lifestyle had earned her a well-deserved death, but this unlikely source, a prostitute, placed her unwavering faith in God ? and lived.
