Divisions:

1
6:1-22
God saw man was evil but Noah was righteous, so He commanded Noah to build ark and gather food for family and animals because flood is coming.
Principle:
Our actions can grieve God.
God has every right to judge His creation!
God made a way to save His chosen people!  And animals too.
God instructs His chosen people.
Obedience to God’s instruction can be the difference between life and death.
2
7:1-24
Noah obeyed when God said to enter ark with family and animals, He closed them in, the flood came and all flesh perished.
Principle:
God provides the sacrifice He wants us to give Him.
God keeps His word!
You are never too old to be used of God!
3
8:1-22
Waters receded and God called Noah out of the ark, then Noah offered sacrifices and God promised not to destroy mankind again.
Principle:
Watching for signs that God is about to act is wise.
Waiting for God to call you out of where He put you is preferable to setting out on your own.
When God brings us through a flood, our first response should be to praise Him!

 

Subject Sentence:

God’s deliverance from the flood led righteous Noah to sacrifice.

 

Aim (Christian and Non-Christian):

TCMCATK that God provided a way for His chosen people to be saved from eternal damnation just as He provided a way for Noah and his family to be saved from the flood, and that we should be fruitful and praise God as a result.

2

In what way has God used you for His purposes lately?
3
What signs of God’s activity have you noticed recently?
Where are you waiting for God’s direction and how will you keep from setting out on your own?
What praise would you like to give God for the situations He’s delivered you from?
