I just finished reading Joshua 2. I noticed how Rahab the harlot was told to let down a SCARLET rope out of her house so her family would be saved. God forgave her past and promised her and hers a future - in short - she was REDEEMED. Thank God we're all REDEEMED by the BLOOD of Jesus as well. As one writer said, "When I look at my children, I never think about their past. Only their potential. This is how God sees us." No matter your past, because of the BLOOD your house is protected and your future is bright!
