Sermons about Rahab
Talk is cheap. James says that we must do...like Abraham, and Rahab did. Its not enough to know, but we must DO.
Have you ever wondered why a prostitute is listed as an example of godly faith? How could a woman whose life revolved around sin teach us about having faith in God? Rahab risked it all on trusting God....shouldn't we?
Pastor Wayne shares about the blood of Jesus, and the impact it makes on our lives. Part 1 of the Sizzlin' Summer Series
This week Pastor Tim Osborn begins the series, "People With A Past." Tim will read from Joshua 2:1-24, as he gives his talk, "Rahab."
Obedience Completes Faith
Dynamic Faith - James 2:21-26 In these verses we are given three examples of living faith. In the first two examples we see both the root and results of righteousness in the lives of Abraham and Rahab; the last example compares the body and spirit to fatih and works.
Many times we read Bible stories of the great heroes of the faith and hold them to such a high esteem. in fact, you can buy a Moses action figure much like you can buy a G.I. Joe toy! However, Pastor Ben will share with us in this series how he believes that many of these "heroes" of the faith are uplifted in ways not originally intended. He likes to think that they were "unlikely" men and women that God chose to use to glorify Himself. They were people much like you and me who simply trusted God and He used them significantly. This series is a study through Hebrews 11, examining these "unlikely" men and women of faith.
Joshua points to the gospel of Jesus because humanity has sinned against God like the Canaanite nations, but since God poured out His wrath on His Son, those who believe in Him are saved. After the Israelites enter the land promised to Abraham, God commands her to destroy all the inhabitants. Only those (e.g., Rahab) who have faith in the True God of Israel are spared.
