Faith Building Verse-Hebrews 11:31

July 28th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Hebrews 11:31.

By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.

In Joshua, chapter 2, she told the spies, “I know that the LORD has given you this land.” “the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.” She appealed for kindness to her family. Her family was spared when the walls of Jericho fell.

Rahab’s faith is identified as the reason why she was spared from death. Her faith in the Lord was also a turning point for her to leave the old way of life behind. She married a man named Salmon. They had a son. Their names are identified in the genealogy of Jesus.

When we trust Jesus to save us, our past does not define us. Our faith in Him does.

This Faith-Building Verse inspires us to come alive to God for a new life in the Year of Relationship.
