Joshua 2:18 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household, home unto thee.
Rahab had saved the lives of God’s men. She had hidden them in her house because she believed God. She knew that God was powerful and would have victory over Jericho and the gods of Jericho. She asked the spies to save her.
The spies promised to save Rahab and any she could get into her house. That meant she would have to go and share with her family what was happening. She would have to convince them that the God of Israel was the true God. They would have to believe that God was greater than the gods of Jericho.
We have been given good news as well. God is greater than our sin. God is greater than death. We can have life and have it more abundantly. We must share this truth and invite our friends and family to the household of faith.
