Faith In What God Says
Passage: Genesis 6:5–22
Intro: Why this series on faith vs. sight?
GOD IS THERE & HE IS NOT SILENT
How are all these considerations only possible because of God speaking?
WHAT IS WRONG?
How is our generation facing a twin problem over evil and a crisis of judgment?
WHAT HOPE DO WE HAVE?
Yet even in the midst of evil, how has the LORD worked to save His people?
YOU CAN PRAY WITH US…
1.Worship the LORD that He is King and Judge of His creation. Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that He has revealed Himself by His Word, and that He not only stops evil but also works to save sinners like us.
2.How have you been naïve about your own corruption, or unwilling to enter into the “ark” of Jesus’ work to save sinners? Confess your pride and unbelief to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and change your heart.
3.Give thanks to Jesus for His wisdom and kindness. Thank Him that by His wisdom He devised a way for divine justice to be satisfied by His death in your place and to rescue you in the midst of the greatest threat – God’s justice!
4. Who do you know that lives in denial of what God has plainly said? Ask the Lord to open their eyes to realize their true condition before Him, and that He would give you courage to be a herald like Noah was.
5. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you an increased sense of your being rescued by Christ’s work. Ask Him to help you trust the LORD’s word and work to define you in ways that no created thing can.
