Hebrews 11:31; Joshua 2:1-24

God works in amazing ways through unusual people to accomplish His eternal purposes. But there is no one more unusual than Rahab the harlot-the bad girl who made good.

A. The prudence of Joshua.
1. He accepted God's promises. Joshua 1:3

Note: God accomplishes ends through means. To ignore means, therefore, is not faith but presumption.

2. God sends the suitable servant. e.g. John 4; Acts 8

3. God accomplishes the eternal ends.

II. The Facts that Accentuated Her Transformation.
