Whatever your past may be, God can both forgive it and can change the ending to your story. Hebrews 11 records the stories of an impressive list of biblical heroes. Among them are a few individuals who we might not have thought to include but whom God exalted as unlikely heroes.
SERMON TEXT: HEBREWS 11:31-34
31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.
34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
