Joshua 2:1-11

Life is full of choices. While many of the choices we make are simply a matter of preference, some choices are a matter of right and wrong. When it comes to making the right choice, there are two important assumptions to remember. First, we have to recognize that there is a choice to be made—sometimes we do not even know there is more than one option. Second, we have to know which choice is the “right” choice. Sometimes we are able to determine the “right” choice on our own, but often times we learn the “right” choice from others and their past experiences.

We see in the story of Rahab that God has done the work of making the nations aware that there is a choice to be made in the first place: continue worshipping false gods or worship the one true God of Israel. The mighty acts of God not only served to liberate and deliver Israel but demonstrated to the nations the “right” choice. God did not leave it to the nations to determine their need for salvation on their own. The God of Israel took the initiative and made His salvation known.
