“… even though they do not have the law. They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them. ” — ROMANS 2:14-16
God coyly installs invitations inside every person in the form of a conscience. If people have “the requirements of the law are written on their hearts,” Someone must have done the writing! Right? It’s not a perfect rule of thumb because it can be skewed or silenced by relentless inattention. But when it’s in good working order, the conscience points directly to the One who installed it.
I have no doubt that in the quiet of her heart Rahab knew that her trade corroded her soul and that Someone had something more for her than this. When she looked inside she saw Someone looking out.
