Joshua 2:1 “Then Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim. “Go, look over the land,” he said, “especially Jericho.” So they went and entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there.”

It is shocking that God would use a prostitute to protect Joshua's two spies. What's even more shocking is that she and her family were the only ones saved after Joshua and his army marched around Jericho allowing God to destroy the walls (recorded in Joshua 6). What's more preposterous than that? God used Rahab (and her husband Salmon) to birth Boaz who married Ruth (as the kinsman redeemer) and they gave birth to Obed who was the grandfather of David!

This is interesting because it means that God used a prostitute to preserve the patriarchal lineage which was prophesied concerning the birth of Jesus!

If God can use a prostitute to do all this, SURELY HE CAN USE YOU FOR HIS PURPOSES!!
