Central Baptist Church Detroit this weekend with Pastor Robert Bolden
Hebrews 11:7 Faith for the Future
First let’s begin with there is nothing wrong with having to start from scratch.
God prepared Noah to do something that had never been done before in preparation for something that has never happened before/yet.
Noah also called on his sons to build the ark with him. If they were going to be staying there they needed to contribute to it.
Teach your children how to build something for themselves
We know that Noah had a drinking problem. Just because you’re human doesn’t mean you still can’t be super. He was still one of the Bible’s Greatest Heroes. Genesis 9
It is not a sin to drink but drinking is not a replacement for peace or joy or to hide from your reality.
One of the same sons who helped him build exposed Noah when he was drunk in his tent and naked. This was the end of Noah’s story.
We live in a world where you can do 100 things right and when you do 1 thing wrong, they throw you away.
Noah still made the Hall of Fame of Faith. He had faith for the future.
In order to have faith for the future:
- You’ll have to learn how to heed God’s warnings
What warnings is God trying to show you and you ain’t listening
- Be prepared to act
We monitor alot of stuff but what actions are you taking to change it
- Be willing to look like a fool
The past is always a few points ahead until the future happens. If God gave you the vision it’s not for someone else to understand
