“If you love me, obey my commandments.”
so on my course of reading through “Big God” written by Britt Merrick.
I came to the chapter called “Faith Working (Noah)”. It is basically studying through Noah’s life.
Man, I was totally blown away how the lesson we can learn from his life is relevant to me today!!!
I knew how Noah’s life was and teaching I can glean from him, but, as always the Word does, I felt I was reading passage that I had never read before!
So I want to share what God taught me with you.
As we live in dark world, we need to be the light and get ready for Christ’ return.
When I say that I want to love and follow Jesus, I need to make adjustments in my life to be obedient.
For Noah, it took him 120 years of his life to build the ark. He had to make radical adjustment!!!
I really believe that I have to make radical adjustment for God more. I need to stop surfing internet, being lazy, sleeping in....... the list can go on and on...
When I do that for God, and live for Him, God work through and in my life more.
Noah lived his life that is radically different from everyone else did. But he lived for God!!
Pastor Britt writes....
“Noah’s life was a sermon. Like Noah, we preach the gospel not just with our words but also with our actions. Actions speak louder than words. As Saint Francis of Assisi said ‘Preach the gospel at all times - if necessary, use words.”
but, the question is how do I make such a big adjustments like Noah??
here is the answer, “Fall in love with God more and more”.
“Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
God is my joy!! I know when I am on His path and spending really good time of intimate relationship with Jesus, I am so satisfied than going to Disney Sea (which I love so much yet), sleeping in and all the other earthly pleasure.
It is about intimacy with God!!
A.W. Tozer said
“When we catch the true life of worship, then the work that flows out of it will have eternity in it.”
again, Pastor Britt writes
“The truth is that ministry should flow from intimacy.”
Oh, I want to love Jesus more and more than ever I did!!
Let this be my prayer always.
