Christmas Hope: Rahab
December 3, 2021 • Matthew 1:5 Joshua 2 James 2:25-26 Romans 5:8
Do you ever question why God would want you in his family? Do you ever feel like you just don’t belong or that you’re too messed up to bother saving? These feelings are difficult any time of the year but can be particularly acute during the Christmas season. Join Groundwork for an Advent reflection on the story of Rahab. Rahab is the second woman named in Jesus’ genealogy. She was a prostitute, she wasn’t an Israelite, and she was seemingly as unworthy of belonging in God’s family as one could get. Yet, Rahab is called by name in Jesus’ family tree. Join us in discovering biblical truths about faith, deliverance, and belonging in Rahab’s story. Together, we’ll find encouragement for our own faith in this unexpected story of God’s grace.
