Genesis pt6


The question: In a world of how do I find God’s favor?  

Genesis 6:5-8  

5. 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. 

6. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 

7. So the Lord said, ” I will wipe mankind, whom I have created , from the face of the earth -men animals, and creatures that move along the ground, birds of the air- for Iam grieved that I have made them. ”

8. But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.  

How did Noah find God’s favor?

1. He was a righteous man. 

2. He was blameless among the people. 

3. He.walked with God.  

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ our Lord.

God always has his eye on rescuing his people. 

Genesis 6:22  Noah did everything just as God command him. 

Genesis. 7:5 And Noah did all that the Lord Commanded him 

Genesis 9:12-17

  1. Romans 8:14 says “those who are led by the spirit of God are His Children. John 14:15-17 says ““If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you”. That being said; those who keep God’s commands receive son-ship through the Holy Spirit and therefore gain God’s favor. Think about it, what parent doesn’t favor their child over someone else’s child? We are all given the opportunity to be adopted into God’s family through the amazing grace that is available to all mankind because of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The difference is that not everyone accepts the free gift of God’s grace, and they choose to remain in their sin, which leads to death. Luke 2:14 SAYS “”Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Just as the Holy spirit descended upon Christ like a dove and God made it clear that He was pleased with His Son Jesus, we who God approve by His Holy Spirit, please God and therefore we have His favor…

    Thank you yes that is right but also he gives us a choice on whether or not to come into relationship with him. We should love him all of our hearts and love our neighbors as ourselves.

  3. We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 His love for us was shown in the sacrifice of His Son. We in turn sacrifice our lives in the flesh and live by His Word and Spirit. Those who make that sacrifice and live by God’s Spirit are our Neighbors/Brethren. Flesh “neighbors” live in the same physical community as one another. Spiritual neighbors have commune through faith and our home is Heaven :)

    It comes down to the condition of our hearts and our obedience to what God asks us to do.
