Everyday Jesus Loving Sinners
You want to hide, not disclose your past because you think it defines you? It doesn’t when you’ve come into the light and let God reveal the truth of who He says you are, beautiful and redeemed. There was a woman Rahab, a woman who had worked as a prostitute who lived in the “Promised Land,” the land God had promised to give to the Israelites. Joshua, their leader sent spies to Jericho before entering the land to get the scope of the land and people. Rahab hid the spies in her home and in Joshua 2 she is told; “If you don’t betray us, we will keep our promise and be kind to you when the LORD gives us the land.” And that’s what happened.
Rahab had a past, but she got “past it” and at the end of her life she had come to love the God of Israel. No matter how bad your past is God has a future and new beginning for you…everyday.
