Scripture of the Day - October 21, 2012

Hebrews 11:31  By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

Rahab had faith and she acted on that faith. She had heard about the God of Israel and believed on Him. She welcomed the spies that Joshua had sent out, and even helped them hide from the soldiers. She did what they told her to do and was saved from destruction. It seemed like such an insignificant thing to do but she did it and was miraculously saved. The whole city fell except for her home. Had she not let down that scarlet cord she would have perished with everyone else who didn't believe. 
There are quite a few lessons in this story. One I will point out today is that it's not enough to just believe. You must act on that belief. It's not enough to have faith. You must act on that faith. James is very clear that faith without works is dead. Do you believe? Show it. Do you have faith? Show it. Do you love Him? Show it, obey His commands.
