The wickedness of man provoked Gods wrath! So much evil that God regretted He even made man… Can you imagine? It sounds like the world today. Yet there was one righteous
Genesis 6:9 Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.
Noah was not popular with man, but with God. Its easy to walk upright when everything is well, but it takes a real act of faith to go against the tide!
To stand for God…when NO ONE else does. Could you have been a Noah in that day? Standing firm for God, obeying his instructions on building the Ark, when the world laughs at you?
Obedience is better than sacrifice. What we do in obedience surely brings a just reward from God
How is your faith walk??
Hebrews 11:1-7 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
What would you say is your greatest hinderance to your walk with God?
How do you relate to Noah and the things God required of him?
What else is God teaching you right now in your reading in Genesis?
