Aggressive Faith Pt.1
Text: Joshua 2:1,9,12
Before undertaking any task of significance, it is a wise and prudent thing to first do a feasibility study, by that I mean it is wise to way-up the size and cost of the proposed project!
In Luke 14:28-31 our master tells us the same thing!
In Joshua 1:2 God said to Joshua “Moses my servant is dead, now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou and all these people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel”!
Moses is dead Joshua, but both his words and his God is still alive, it is time to experience the manifestation of what he spoke about!
Favour from a most unusual source: Joshua 2:1,3-4
This is a difficult thing for most of us to come to terms with, in the entire city of Jericho there was only one person who God could find who He could use to shelter the two spies and this rather unsavoury young lady had the audacity
to believe and have faith in God!
Aggressive Faith: Verses 10-11
Rahab’s lifestyle was deplorable, but when she heard the reports concerning the children of Israel and what their God had done for them, it ignited “Aggressive Faith” within her heart!
In verse 12 she says, “Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the Lord, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house and give me a true token”!
Rahab; you did show kindness, but that is not what will save you, the kindness you showed cannot atone for your sinful lifestyle, which deserves judgement and death!
Verse 18 if we see this scarlet thread you will be saved from death, the blood will save you and your household from condemnation and death!
Aggressive Faith: Verse 11 “…For the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and in the earth beneath”!
