By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith – Hebrews 11:7.
This past Sunday’s service was from Hebrews 11:7, where the author shares about having faith like Noah. The name Noah means peace and rest. It is amazing how Noah listen to God by building the ark in a time where it had never rain on Earth before. God told Noah there was going to be a great flood and to build a boat to hold his family and two of every living creature. Noah was mocked by the people of that day. But Noah’s faith did not waiver. He completed the ark upon God’s direction, as from the account in the Book of Genesis 5-11. In these chapters Noah did as God commanded because of His faith in God, even though Noah could not see the Him.
From Hebrews 11:1-2, we are to place our strong faith and trust in God, because we have hope In Jesus for His provision. We are to pass down our faith in Jesus to our children and family. God spoke the world into existence Genesis 1. Without our faith in Christ, it is impossible to please Him. God will show us great and mighty things if we cry out to Him. If we believe, then God will reward us. True faith will be seen in our behavior as we walk with Jesus. Your life needs to line up with what your saying and doing. We need to walk daily with God. Today, there are several live accounts that Noah’s ark sits on top of Mount Ararat.
We need to heed God warning that a greater judgement is coming on day. Today’s world is corrupt, but we must choose to live for Jesus. Stop living with the crowd and start following Jesus. We are to be like Noah by following the will of God in our lives. We are to fear the Lord like Noah believed in God. Because Jesus loves you and He has the perfect plan for your life. Are you believing like Noah by walking with Jesus?
