60IN60 Day 16 - Tues Nov 19

It's Day 16 and we're in Joshua 4.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 6 - There are those mementos (whether physical or just memories) that remind us of times when God has moved in the past that we need to have to be able to get through the tough times.  There are a couple things in my own life that I think of when I'm struggling with things not going the way I thought they would.  They remind me: "God has come through before.  God has been generous to you in the past."

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions and Comments: 
- "2:3-5 - Was Rahab not a Christian?" - Technically, no one was a Christian at this point.  That isn't a term that you can use until the New Testament.  What we do know in this situation: Rahab is not a a Jewish person.  Joshua is leading Israel to take over the Promised Land.  Rahab is one of the people of Jericho.  She chooses to hide the Jewish spies.  Why did she do that?  It could have been because she decided to believe in the Jewish God.  It could have been just because she was scared she was going to die when Israel defeated Jericho and she saw this as a way to save her own life.
