Sermon Summary | February 3, 2019
“FAITH THAT SAVES” ( Hebrews 11:30-35; Joshua 2:1-6 )
Speaker: Pastor Ulysses Stephen King, Jr.

The Bible cannot be read without coming across stories of many godly, and a few ungodly women circumstantially placed in historical positions. It is not news that God used some of these women to accomplish His determined purposes as judges, spies, warriors, prophetess, leaders, musicians and philanthropists. Through some of them we can learn the lessons of life knowing what to do and not to do at any given occasion.

They can be found in both testaments. Today let me introduce to you Rahab, a real woman so intriguing that lived about 1450 years before Christ. She is a Canaanite, a Gentile, a sinner, and lived as a prostitute with many negatives that can shut any person out of a civil society. What an unlikely candidate—by all worldly standards—to be mentioned in the annals of the Holy Scriptures.

Rahab was a real, common person, showing real courage, and becoming an uncommon pillar of faith. She lived in the city of Jericho in the land of Canaan. Historically, the Canaanites were idolaters that practice religious child sacrifices to appease their gods. The nation was filled with serious sexual perversion where sodomy and other vices were commonplace. They had temples built to their gods and goddesses with male and female prostitutes.

Rahab lived in such a place and time. She never led an army nor went into battle at any given time, but she is the heroine of the story. She was instrumental in helping the Israelites win the battle against the Amorites of Jericho. She had no merits to recommend her, but she was destined by God to appear at the right time of history. She was an outstanding woman of exemplary courage and faith.

However in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews we noticed the absence of the name of Joshua, the hero and commander of the army of Israel. Why did the author omit his name and mentioned the name of Rahab? That is reason enough why this story is worthy to be told. It was written so that we might know the battle was won by faith, and not by the might of a man. The Holy Spirit was showing the important contribution of women to the ministry. Rahab is a perfect example of the riches of the grace of God. Her story shines out as a beacon of hope for the hopeless and strength in the midst of weakness. “For God chooses the weak things, despised, foolish to bring to nothing the wisdom of this world” (1 Corinthian 1:26-31). —Notes by USK
Thank You for Supporting the Community Food Giveaway!
Last Saturday, we had prepared to feed and be a blessing to those in our community who were hungry! And that is what we did! The blessings continued to flow over to Sunday where church members were able to get food for themselves or those they knew could not make it to the church. But the blessings continued! Fresh produce and can goods remained to be a blessing to Auntie Frances' Self Help Hunger Program Tuesday! God will always give us just what is needed to do what He has purposed for a thing! Obedience is key, and we continue to ask God to use us greater for His purpose. Just continue to TRUST HIM!
