Sermon on Noah

INTRODUCTION:

A. Almost 11 centuries after the creation of Adam and Eve, Lamech had a son whom he called “Noah”

1. Lamech was 182 year old when Noah was born

2. Methuselah was Noah’s grandfather and was a contemporary with Adam for 243 years.

3. Methuselah knew first hand the events of the garden of Eden … creation, provisions, the fall

4. Lamech, again – the father of Noah, was 56 when Adam died and clearly understood the fall of man and the curse of God;cf. Genesis 5:29

5. Methuselah and Lamech heard Enoch preach and saw the example of his noble life … of Enoch it was said that “he walked with God” (Genesis 5:24).

6. All of this must have made a deep impression on Noah

B. But something terrible happened, man refused to obey God

1. Genesis 6:5-6

a. Man did only evil continually

b. They did nothing pure, nor noble, nor good, nor honorable

c. Man had become a festering sore

2. The Bible teaches that a man can become so morally reprobate as to go beyond the point of return

a. Hebrews 6:4-6

b. This was happened to those in the days of Noah

C. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8)

1. Noah was a great man who lived in the midst of runaway immorality

2. Many believe that even his grandfather and father succumbed to this fatal influence

D. It is possible to live righteous in the midst of unrighteousness

1. Daniel did it

2. Abraham did it

3. Moses did it

4. Jeremiah did it

5. Paul and Silas did it

6. Remember Exodus 23:2 … this includes our kinfolk

E. Let us now for a few moments look at the life of Noah.

DISCUSSION:

A. NOAH WAS A MAN OF COURAGE

1. Noah was courageous because he stood alone against the world

a. He had to withstand the influence of his grandfather and father

b. Too many today are following their family members into wickedness

2. Noah was courageous because the odds did not stop him

a. He spoke boldly in God’s name

b. 2 Peter 2:15

3. Noah preached many years without a single convert

a. Only his family heeded his preaching

b. And we think we have it tough!!!

4. Noah to his eternal credit did not become discouraged nor did he begin to doubt the message.

a. I see many becoming discouraged today … but Galatians 6:9 says …

b. Noah kept sowing the seed, but saw it fall only on hard ground

c. We need to remember 1 Corinthians 3:6

5. It would be great if we could convert the whole world!

a. But Jesus said … Matthew 7:13-14

b. We need to be like Noah, and do our part and let God take care of the rest

6. In the midst of wickedness, we must do as Noah did:

a. Preached righteousness

b. Taught truth

c. Defend the faith

d. Sow the seed

e. Don’t worry about the results

B. NOAH WAS JUST AND PERFECT

1. Genesis 6:9

2. To be just (or righteous, as other versions have) is to do what is right

a. Psalm 119:172

b. 1 John 3:7, 10

3. Noah was perfect

a. Not sinless, but blameless

b. How was Jesus made perfect?

1) Hebrews 5:8-9

2) Though Jesus did not sin, He was not made perfect until He obeyed

c. How was Noah perfect?

1) He obeyed God

2) Because Noah was just and perfect he was said to “walk with God”

C. NOAH LIVED BY FAITH

1. Hebrews 11:7

a. Notice that Noah “moved” with godly fear and “prepared” and ark

b. Action describes the faith of Noah

2. If Noah would not have been a man of action, he would not have been a man of faith

a. Faith must obey

b. Vain faith does not obey

3. James 2:22, 24

a. Faith produces works of obedience

b. No man was ever blessed on account of his faith until that faith manifested itself in acts of obedience

D. NOAH HAD GODLY FEAR

1. Hebrews 11:7 says that Noah “… moved with fear”

2. This is another thing that moved Noah to obey

3. Noah was one who knew the majesty of God, and knew He was to be reverenced in Godly fear

4. To be godly means:

a. Love God

b. To be a follower of God

c. To emulate God

5. To have godly fear means:

a. To have respect and reverence for God

b. Being unwilling to do anything that would cause God to be displeased

E. NOAH WAS OBEDIENT TO GOD

1. Obedience is the one word that best describes the life of Noah

2. One can not be courageous, just, faithful, and have godly fear unless they are obedient

3. God told Noah to build an ark and gave him exact dimensions and a list of materials to be used

a. “And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him” (Genesis 7:5)

b. Noah was given a pattern and he obeyed – plain and simple

4. Today we have been given the dimensions and materials to be used in the present day ark of safety – the church

a. How it is to be constructed

b. What it is to be made of

c. How to take care of it

5. What would have happened to Noah’s ark had he not obeyed God’s plan? – It would have sank!

6. Today if we do not build the ark of safety according to God’s pattern, it too will sink!

7. Noah was saved through his obedience, and will we.

CONCLUSION:

A. Noah is an example we should emulate:

1. Courageous

2. Righteous

3. Faithful

4. Full of godly fear

5. Obedient

B. 1 Peter 3:21

1. Water cleansed the world of filth in Noah’s day

2. Today the waters of baptism will wash away the dirt of sin if we have:

a. Believed

b. Repented

c. Confessed the name of Christ

C. Let us all strive to be more like Noah

  5. pastorbruce says:

    Thank you for the well organized notes concerning Noah of the Old Testament. One point of clarification, “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” and by faith was declared righteous and was eternally justified (saved) prior to demonstrating his obedient faith in building the Ark.

    His “obedient faith” allowed him to manifest his invisible faith in YHWH (the LORD) as the His trusted Saviour to mankind (and us today). His obedient faith allowed Noah and his family to escape the judgment of the flood, not Hell.

    Noah eventually died physically but he never “perished spiritually” because of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. (John 3.16; Romans 4.5; John 14.6; Acts 4.12; Luke 24.25-27)

    Sincerely yours in Christ alone

  6. Tom Moore says:

    Noah found grace in the sight of the Lord BECAUSE he did “according to all that God commanded him” (Gen. 6:22) before (Gen. 6:9) and after building the ark (Gen. 7:5). Question: how can it be “through grace alone” and still be “through faith?” If it through faith it is not by grace alone. Noah receved God’s grace because he had an obedient faith (Heb. 13:7).

    thanks a lot, it helps me preparing sermon about bible great heroes as patterned to heroes of today

  10. Gary Smith says:

    Good sermon notes. It blessed me and ministered to me. We must remember the definition of GRACE is God’s Divine empowerment. Therefore, by FAITH we accept the redemptive work Christ did for us on the Cross and by GRACE (God’s ability in us) we live it out. I’m so thankful today that I am saved, but ONLY through God’s GRACE can I please Him and obey Him. Within myself, I cannot be good – but – “Greater is HE WHO is in me that he who is in the world!” Thanks again for the inspiration.

  16. john arroyo says:

    I’M WRITING A STORY WHERE THE LIFE OF NOAH IS INVOLVED. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW NOAH MADE A LIVING?? JESUS WAS A CARPENTER,WHAT DID NOAH DO?? WAS HE A RICH MAN?? OR WAS HE A POOR MAN. HE WAS RICH ON FAITH AND FAVOR, BUT FOR DETAILS FOR MY STORY,WHAT WAS A DAY IN THE LIFE OF NOAH LIKE????IF U COULD ANSWER THIS IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. ALSO TODAY I SAW A RAINBOW..GENESIS 9;16″WHENEVER THE RAINBOW APPEARS IN THE CLOUDS I WILL SEE IT AND REMEMBER THE EVERLASTING COVENANT BETWEEN GOD AND ALL LIVING CREATURES OF EVERY KIND ON THE EARTH.” SO I THINK WHEN WE SEE A RAINBOW WE SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER NOAHS OBEDIENCE, AND FAVOR HE FOUND FROM THE LORD.AND MAY WE STRIVE AS CHILDREN OF GOD TO FIND THE FAVOR ACHIEVED BY NOAH..
