Rahab: Never Judge a Book by Its Cover
The faith of a Canaanite whore, Rahab, teaches us to never judge a book by its cover! Even though she was a pagan, she knew something about the living God that most Canaanite people probably didn't know: He alone is able to save. Simply put, this woman had heard about the power of God and all the victories He had won for the children of Israel, and she said, "I want that too!" For her simple act of faith, God spared her and her entire family from destruction. That one act which typifies the saving work of Christ shows us that God has not changed, and salvation is just as simple even in this day and age. Joshua 2. VF-2325.
