Let us always obey God’s commands

 

Let’s look at the life of Noah and the story of the ark. In Genesis 6:5-8 we have the following words, “The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord grieved that He had made man on the earth, and His heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air, for I am grieved that I have made them.’” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had cor-rupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.”

And in verse 17: “I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. But I will establish My covenant with you and you will enter the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your son’s wives with you. You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you.” And verse 22 says, “Noah did everything just as God commanded him.”

If the Lord had asked you, or has asked you to do something that seems “unreasonable” as the requests made to Noah, would you have the courage to follow God? There are no passages to indicate anything other than complete obedience from Noah. Would that have been said about you, about me?

And (fill in your name) did all that the Lord commanded you. What a wonderful thing to have said about anybody. Will it be said of you? Will it be said of me?

When we walk with the Lord, we win. Many times we have grief in our winning, but with God He is enough! Our faith is enough when we turn it over to Him.

Let’s have the following goals in our walk with Lord.

Obedience to God, no matter what the task.

In the midst of ridicule, etc. still be true to God.

In winning with God, there may be grief, but God is still in control, we can trust Him, always!

Join us at La Vernia United Methodist Church each Sunday as we seek the direction of God in our daily lives. We want to always do as the Lord commands, just as Noah did.
