Rahab - Team Player

Joshua 2:4-5 But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. She said, "Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they had come from. At dusk, when it was time to close the city gate, the men left. I don't know which way they went. Go after them quickly. You may catch up with them."

Have you ever done something that was totally out of character for you and you really don't know why you did it, but you did it anyway? This was Rahab. She does not have a reason to lie for these men. From what we know of her character, she was not the type of person to do good for no reason. They have not promised her anything, she was not offered money - why in the world would she protect these men she did not know? Not only that, she then sent the kings special agents on a wild goose chase.

The thing is, God does not need you to be a member of His team for you to score points for His team. The truth is, you need Him. You also don't have to be of the elite to be used by Him. Here's the amazing thing - Rahab was unaware of the way God was working in her life - sometimes we know that God's way is better and we still don't have the courage to stand against what we believe to be wrong the way Rahab did. So stand strong... and win one for The team
