Summary: This sermon looks at the faith of Noah and what it has to do with us.
Stepping Out on Faithfulness!
Men have tried to appease the “gods” for centuries
Aztecs (volcano god), Canaanites (fertility gods)
The way to please God is through faithfulness
Heb 11:6, 7
Pistis- faithfulness or faith
Faithfulness is acting on your faith (beliefs)
Noah was living his life faithfully to God
This is the “found favor” portion
If you claim to have faith, but don’t act on it…
You’re just going through the motions
God speaks specifically about faith in the Bible
There’s not many things bigger than an ark
Noah was faithful to God everyday
Otherwise, God wouldn’t have trusted him with the ark
Faithful in what?
Faithful in using your talents- Mt. 25:14-30
Conviction led them to action
Master was happy with them- Heb. 11:6
No quitting or retiring in Christianity
Faithful in evangelism- Acts 1:8
Don’t worry about my return
Be faithful in the task I have given you
Spread the Word
Faithful in worship- Jn. 4:24-24
Not the who, what, when, where, why & how of worship
Love God even when you’re not in church
If you didn’t love Him all week, you don’t love Him today
You’re only here out of duty or habit
Simply a hypocrite
Faithful in the “one-another’s”
Love, serve, encourage
This is the faithfulness God is looking for
We can’t step out and do big things for God until we do the small things
How do you please God?
You live a faithful life
Want to do something big for God?
Start with faithfulness
