By faith Moses was hidden by his parents for three months when he was born, because they saw that the child was beautiful and they weren’t afraid of the king’s orders. By faith Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter when he was grown up. He chose to be mistreated with God’s people instead of having the temporary pleasures of sin. He thought that the abuses he suffered for Christ were more valuable than the treasures of Egypt, since he was looking forward to the reward. By faith he left Egypt without being afraid of the king’s anger. He kept on going as if he could see what is invisible. By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, in order that the destroyer could not touch their firstborn children. By faith they crossed the Red Sea as if they were on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried it, they were drowned. By faith Jericho’s walls fell after the people marched around them for seven days. By faith Rahab the prostitute wasn’t killed with the disobedient because she welcomed the spies in peace. (Hebrews 11:23-31, CEB)
Most of this section of Hebrews 11 is about Moses. But the last two sentences are after Moses.
Jericho’s walls fell after the people marched around them for seven days.
And Rahab, the prostitute, wasn’t killed with the others in the promised land because she welcomed the spies.
Rahab. 1 of 4 women listed in Jesus’ genealogy. She is essential to all of our histories. And by faith, she was kept.
Do not discount someone that doesn’t fit the mold you think is what God wants, because they may just be the one that God is picking.
Loving People. Loving God.
