We're concluding the series this weekend that we've been in the last several weeks on lessons from the life of Noah. Now the Bible says Noah was a godly man, and yet he had to go through the flood. Noah didn't get to skip the flood, God just gave him the means to rise above it and float on the surface, and many times we are praying for God to stop the flood waters from rising in our lives when God wants to give us the strength to rise above the flood waters that come into our lives. It's interesting that the Bible never tells us all the reasons why God allows the floods into our lives, but it does tell us where to turn to experience a flood of healing.
I want you to open your Bibles to Hebrews Chapter 11. Now the story of Noah is in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, in the Old Testament, but Noah is mentioned eight times in the New Testament, because there are so many life lessons to learn from his life. So would you stand in honor of God's word, and we are going to look at one of the eight times he is mentioned in the New Testament, and just follow along with me. You don't have to read it out loud, but just stay with me. It's a very important passage.
"By faith Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn't see, and acted on what he was told. The result? His family was saved. His act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with God."
Dear God I pray that the result of our being in worship today to meet with you would be that we would really come into an intimate relationship with you and understand that Christianity is not about religion. It's not about all the dos and don'ts or the checklist. It's about a relationship with you, and I pray that you would just really help us experience a flood of healing today, because I know everyone here has a hurt. Maybe it's an emotional hurt or a relationship that's in trouble, or maybe it's physical healing we need. Lord, we all need healing in some way, and I pray that you would just flood our hearts with your peace and just do a work in our lives as we really put your word into our hearts that changes us forever. I thank you that you're right here, right now. In Jesus' name, Amen. You can be seated.
Then I want you to underline the phrase in that passage, his family was saved.
