This week we looked at the story of Rahab (who was a prostitute) in Joshua 2:1-5 and a follow up to Rahab in Matthew 1:5 where we see Jesus' family tree and the inclusion of Rahab.
Below is a list of people in the Bible who had a flaw, someone we would tend to look at and say "They are not worthy of God for God to use them."
Do you feel like God couldn’t possibly use you? Remember:
~ Noah was a drunk
~ Abraham and Sarah were too old
~ Isaac was a daydreamer
~ Jacob was a liar
~ Leah was ugly
~ Joseph was abused
~ Moses stuttered
~ Gideon was afraid
~ Samson had long hair and was a womanizer
~ Rahab was a prostitute
~ Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
~ David was an adulterer and a murderer
~ Elijah was suicidal
~ Isaiah preached naked
~ Jonah ran from God
~ Naomi was a widow
~ Job went bankrupt
~ Peter denied Christ
~ The disciples fell asleep while praying
~ Martha worried about everything
~ The Samaritan woman was divorced (more than once)
~ Zacchaeus was too small
~ Paul was too religious
~ Lazarus was dead
Before we think God cannot use use or the people around us, remember to assume the best and let God handle the rest!
