Selected highlights from this sermon

Pastor Wiersbe presents the story of Rahab as a picture of God’s grace and salvation. Rahab was a prostitute, condemned morally, spiritually, and politically. She had little knowledge of God’s law, yet she had faith, and God showed her more grace than she could have imagined.

Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message.

If you took women of faith out of the Bible you would have great gaps.

    • Rahab was condemned morally, spiritually, and politically, but God still showed her grace.
    • Rahab goes from being a heathen prostitute to an ancestor of Jesus.
    • The only way anyone can be saved is by grace.
    • Grace means God does for us what we don’t deserve.
    • God is patient with His judgment to give more people a chance to believe.
    • God has made a covenant with us through His blood by grace.
  • Rahab was saved by faith.
    • Rahab knew very little, and yet she believed.
    • Those who know more but do not believe face greater judgment.
  • Rahab was saved to do good works.
    • Rahab’s life was changed.
