EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM NOAH

The Upward Look, by Jon Forrest

EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM NOAH



It is exciting for me to do a preaching series on God’s plan to rescue the world through his man Noah. Last week we looked at how God regretted creating mankind because of the fact that man’s every inclination was to rebel against God. In spite of that he found favor or grace in his eyes for a man named Noah who would be charged with the tremendous task of keeping the world going after everything had been destroyed.


I love the following little snippet of humor and wisdom that I found recently. An unknown author combined the following list of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Noah…


* Don't miss the boat.

* Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

* Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something big.

* Don't listen to critics; just do the job that needs to be done.

* Build your future on high ground.

* For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

* Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

* When you're stressed, float a while.

* Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

* No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.


The world in which we live is in trouble and we are often pressed by it to surrender our faith. When Noah was in trouble God told him to build an ark. Perhaps we can learn something from Noah and God’s dealing with him from our study. This Sunday we will look at Part 2 of our series, When the World is Almost Sunk with a message titled Before Trouble Arrives, Build an Ark! Based on Genesis 6:9-7:5. We will examine how God led Noah and how he will lead us to “build an ark.”


See you Sunday,

Jon
