Joshua 6:25, “But Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute, with her family and all who belonged to her, because she hid the men Joshua had sent as spies to Jericho—and she lives among the Israelites to this day.”


Like many stories throughout the Bible, Rahab's is one of redemption and forgiveness. She literally moved from the whore house to God's house! It wasn't by chance or circumstance or luck. Rahab was pursued by God because God had a purpose for her life.

What do any of us have to do with Rahab? More than we might think! The truth is that God has a purpose for your life. He is pursuing you. And not matter where you are, what you've done, or who you thought you were, God always has redemption in mind for you. It's all about the red rope of redemption. Have you taken hold of that rope? Because hope is in that rope!

Thank God for pursuing you passionately. Pray for the strength you need to turn from whatever you may be involved in and the humility to take hold of His red rope of redemption.
