Genesis 6:1 - 8:22
 
We don't know everything there is to know about the ancient world.
"This is beyond repair. It's time to do a factory reset."
"Blameless among the people of his time."
He was a man of integrity in a world devoid of integrity.
Now is the time to leave.
But He is still in search of men and women who are like Noah.
Does it sound like Paul is describing our current times?
I'm talking about people who can be a light in a darkened world.
 
1. Commit yourself to daily fellowship with God.
  • He tried always to conduct his affairs according to God's will. (Genesis 6:8 TLB)
  • It's not always easy to live out your faith seven days a week.
  • "I want God to be present in my life every day, everywhere I go."
  • ... What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
2. Commit yourself to life-long obedience.
  • Noah's ark project wasn't begun on a whim or completed in a whirlwind of emotion.
  • Noah did all God commanded him to do
  • HAVE A LONG OBEDIENCE IN THE SAME DIRECTION!
  • It was an obedience driven by faith.
  • There was only a long obedience.
  • Sometimes obedience is a long and extended walk of faith.
  • Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)
3. Commit yourself to a God-first life of devotion.
  • You say "thank you" before you say anything else.
  • He's your first resort, not your last resort.
  • And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)
  • God loves the devotion of His people.
  • "I want to acknowledge God first in all that I do."
  • God first. God now. God always.
  • These qualities that were evident in Noah's life are the same qualities we need to develop.
  • Noah found favor with God, because his entire life was lived in pursuit of God.
  • He will make your life more meaningful than you ever imagined possible.
