From Harlot to Heroine part 1

March 16, 2023

Today on The Dwelling Place, pastor Al Pittman will have us consider the faith of Rahab, and show us the difference she made while here on earth - by God’s grace.   This is just part of our new series in the book of Joshua.  Our reference point today will be Joshua two -  where we meet up with Rahab.

Joshua was a great leader, but he was also a servant of God. He trusted God to lead him the enormous task he had before him. The book of Joshua is a great source of inspiration and encouragement.

Told in an easy, narrative tone, the book of Joshua follows the life and times of Joshua, who was charged with the not-so-easy task of leading the Israelites into the Promised Land. Although Joshua encountered opposition, God made good on His promise to never leave him. Let’s see what we can take away from that, shall we?

We’ll continue in Joshua chapter one, of course, where we read of an inheritance promised to the Israelites.  You’ll find Joshua right after Deuteronomy - it is the sixth book in God’s word.

Pastor Al Pittman will join us momentarily to finish up Acts chapter twenty. Before saying his good-byes to the Elders of the Ephesian church, the apostle Paul had some important matters to discuss.  He wanted them to be on the alert, to watch and be warned.  These are exhortations the present day church should take in and apply too!  So let’s turn to Acts twenty and join pastor Al.

We’ve just begun a new series in Joshua, so open your Bible to Joshua chapter one. The Christian has been saved to experience eternal, abundant life with God. But enjoying that abundant life is a cooperative process of surrender and obedience.   There are some great examples of this type of life in the Bible, and none better than Joshua.

God tells Joshua he’s going to lead the people into the Promised Land. Joshua had challenges behind and in front of him that’s for sure, and could have easily become discouraged.  So the Lord has an encouraging word for him, and us!

today marks the beginning of a new journey!  In the coming weeks we plan on going through the entire book of Joshua with you, chapter by chapter.  As pastor Al Pittman brings us an introduction today we can’t help but see how the book speaks of courage, confidence and conquest. The people of Israel are poised and ready to enter the Promised Land, but their leader Moses has died.  The baton of leadership is about to be passed on to Joshua, and that’s where we pick the story up now.

Do you consider your church to be “healthy”? There are certainly signs to be looking out for that would indicate an unhealthy church, and one of them is a lack of forgiveness. Let’s face it - no matter how we might try to avoid it - we are going to do something that hurts another. By word or by action, we offend one another - and we need to be forgiven.

There are several phrases that us human beings find difficult to say. “I’m sorry” is a tough one for a lot of people, and another one is “I forgive you”. That will be pastor Al’s focus today - forgiving one another. When you think about it, if we as a church body were stubbornly refusing to forgive each other, it would make for a very strange meeting every Sunday morning, wouldn’t it?

The greater you value something, the greater you’ll take care of it. If that’s really true, then It’s very telling that there’s such little regard for the Church whom Jesus gave His life for.  So we who love the church ought to care for it and also protect it - especially in light of the very real dangers the church is exposed to in these days of persecution.  We’ll learn more about that today on The Dwelling Place

About Al Pittman

Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents.
