Joshua 2:1 ” Then Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim. ‘Go, look over the land,’ he said, ‘especially Jericho.’ So they went and entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there.”

Rahab had the rather undistinguished title of Harlot of Jericho…and since it wasn’t unusual for strangers and foreigners to come and go out of her house, that’s where the two spies went to not cause suspicion. But despite her infamous title, Rahab was instrumental in the taking of Jericho by the Israelites and the saving of her entire family. She is remembered as one of the great heroines of ancient Israel…raised to a position of honor…amazingly enough, her name appearing in the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1:5, her great faith commended in Hebrews 11:31. Rahab didn’t permit her past title to define her future and God honored her in doing so. Maybe your life today is being defined by some past title that you’re not proud of. It doesn’t have to be that way…the Lord is more than capable of changing you from what you once were into what you can be through Him.
