Grace transforms! When studying the genealogy of Jesus, Rahab can be found there as well as in the faith chapter (Heb. 11) of the Bible. Tied together with the example of Mary Magdalene in this three-part verse is the goal of gaining our Promised Land.
Held Up In Prayer
Our hearts break for those adults we love who deny Jesus as their Lord, even though as children they accepted Him as Savior. There may still be time for them to repent, we can hold them up in prayer with faith before the Lord.
For Some In the Valley of Decision
God uses the most unexpected ways and people to reach others in need of salvation. God is humble and uses the humble to do His work. The more that is learned of God's law, the more is seen the need for grace from God.
Romans 4:17 speaks of calling those things that be not as though they were. Our world looks very far from being at peace, often our lives feel the same. Maybe it's time to do what Jesus did, and speak, "Peace, be still," to the storms.
