A Household of Faith (2003)

Are you walking in obedience to what Jesus wants in your life?

hen Joshua sent spies into Canaan, they met Rahab the harlot. This woman was neither an Israelite nor a righteous person. However, she recognized that the God of Israel was the one true God. Then, she acted in simple obedience to this truth: she hid the spies. This act of faith earned her a place in the “household of faith,” recorded in Hebrews 11.

This woman knew almost nothing about God. But, based on what she did know, she believed and trusted him. However, the danger for many Christians today is that they know much about God, yet refuse to obey him.

Are you walking in simple obedience to God’s will? Or are you trying to come up with religious reasons to excuse yourself from obeying?
