Lessons from Rahab

One of the most amazing characters in the Bible who encourages me when I am down is Rahab.
Yeah, the same ol' Rahab you know, the Canaanite prostitute.

 In the book of Hebrews 11, there is a listing of the Who-is-Who with regards to Faith. There is Abel, Enoch, Noah, the Patriarch Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, …. And then somewhere tucked in verse 31 is Rahab!

What makes this list profound is that most of the people listed in it are men and of the ‘chosen people’ of Israel. Rahab was a foreigner, an idolater whose country was destroyed as a result of their wickedness, a woman and worse still, a prostitute! She was the poster girl for the opposite of faith. Yet, she is listed among mighty men who are models of faith. What can we learn from her?

Happy New Year dear friends, I thank God for keeping us and bringing us to another year. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Celebration and took out time to reflect on the season and the year.

I am very very sorry for not writing all this while, my laptop has been misbehaving. It doesn't charge and rarely comes on. I will try and sort it out asap.

But I missed writing and hope to resume once the laptop is fixed. In the mean time, I wish you more of good health, peace and joy, and of course God's Presence.
Happy 2015!!!
