Rahab’s story in Joshua 2 is a powerful example of faith and devotion. In the Scarlet Cord, Pastor points out three lessons we can take away from her story. First of all that God hears our prayers regardless of our past and our family can be saved. Secondly, that we need to take action and get involved if we want our family saved. And finally, that it’s up to us to guard our home and dictate what has access to our house.
