HEROES: Noah

(Hebrews 12:1) “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great

cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin

that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race

marked out for us.”

 

For when you wonder if your life really counts…

“One person can make a difference.”

 

(Genesis 6:5-8) “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 was 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.”

(Genesis 7:1) “The Lord then said to Noah, ‘Go into the ark, you and

your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this

generation.’”

 

(Acts 16:31) “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you

and your household.”

 

  1. You can make a difference for your generation.

generation, he fell asleep.”

 

  1. You can make a difference for God.

(2 Chronicles 16:9)  “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him….”

 

(Ezekiel 22:30) “I looked for a man among them who would build

up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so

I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.”

 

NOAH’S WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT FOR DIFFERENCE MAKERS

  • “Don’t be afraid to stand out in a crowd.”

(Proverbs 29:25) “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever

trusts in the Lord is kept safe.”

KEY: Prioritize God’s approval over all other opinions.

 

  • “Don’t be afraid to do something for the first time.”

(Hebrews 11:7) “By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet

seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he

condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that

comes by faith.”

KEY: Take the next step.

 

  • “When you see a rainbow, remember that one person can make a difference.”

(Matthew 28:20 NLT) “And be sure of this: I am with you always,

even to the end of the age.”

(2 Peter 3:6-9) “By these waters also the world of that time was

deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and

earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and

destruction of ungodly men… The Lord is not slow in keeping his

promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not

wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

            KEY:  Start living with expectant purpose to make a difference.
