  1 Cor. 6:9-11; 1 Tim. 1:13-16).

2. Faith in the Lord should cause one to fear the Lord (2:8-11; 2 Cor. 7:1; Heb. 12:28-29).

3. Let us all confess, like Rahab, that the Lord is God in heaven and on earth (2:11; Eph. 4:6).

4. Do you want the “scarlet thread” of salvation to hang from your home showing that you want
everyone in your household to be saved by the blood of Jesus (2:18,21; Eph. 1:7)?

5. The Lord keeps his promises (2:24; Tit. 1:2).
