After forty years of wandering in the wilderness God now prepared the children of Israel to enter and begin the conquest of the land of Canaan. Jericho, the first obstacle they faced, seemed insurmountable, if considered from merely human perspectives. But as the two spies sent to get the lay of the land, their encounter with Rahab taught them three important lessons which are still relevant for us today.
- People are condemned before a Holy God and have no excuse.
- Just as people have no excuse, they also have opportunity to be saved.
- God's promise is absolute and cannot be broken.
May God's word bless you as you listen to today's lesson.
