By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
In James 2:17, God’s Word says, “…faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
Noah showed that his faith was alive and real because he believed what God said and acted on it. Friend, you and I should do the same thing in our own lives!
The Bible also says in Romans 10:17 that “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Noah listened for God and then obeyed Him when he was called out.
If you’re reading this today and you hear a still, small voice speaking to you, then don’t shut it out! That quiet voice is the Holy Spirit of God calling you to Him. No… you can’t see Him, but you can know that He is there by faith.
You can rise above our sinking culture just as Noah rose above his. And if you step out of your comfort zone and place your faith in Jesus Christ, then you can have the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life that God gives through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
My friend, your sin isn’t too much to forgive!
SHOW THAT YOUR FAITH IS REAL BY BELIEVING IN WHAT GOD SAYS AND ACTING ON IT!
