A Scarlet Cord

November 11, 2013


Rahab’s story in Joshua 2 is a powerful example of faith and devotion. Pastor points out three lessons we can take away from her story. First, God hears our prayers regardless of our past and our family can be saved. Second, we need to take action and get involved if we want our family saved. And finally, it’s up to us to guard our home and dictate what has access to our house.

  1. What does the scarlet cord represent in this message shared from Joshua 2?
  2. What do you consider the greatest danger to your family’s faith?
  3. What role do you feel you play in the salvation of your children, siblings, spouse or others close to you?
  4. Pastor talks about the scarlet cord dictating who/what has access to the home. Is there anything you feel needs revoked access from your home?
  5. What practical things can you do to bind the Truth to your spirit and your family’s spirit?
  6. Acts 16:31 and Joshua 6:25 are scripture references to household salvation. What other scriptures are helpful to you when praying for the faith of someone you love?

There is nothing more powerful than the Blood of Jesus Christ. It was a simple scarlet cord that kept destruction from Rahab’s home, but it is the spotless Blood of the Lamb that will make your house stand against the enemy’s attack.


Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household. (Acts 16:31)
