Passage: Hebrews 11:7-
Hebrews 11 has been called the faith chapter in the Bible or the Hall of Faith. The last verse in that chapter closes with these words:
"because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect." (Hebrews 11:40)
Everyone is on a faith journey.
Hebrews 11:7 "By faith Noah,"
Faith originates and grows from the Word of God.
Hebrews 11:7 "..being warned by God about things not yet seen,"
Faith is attitude and action.
Hebrews 11:7 "...din reverence prepared an ark"
Faith results in action:
Genesis 6:14 “Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood
Genesis 6:22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.
The evidence of Noah’s faith is that he “prepared an ark.” Faith without works is dead. James 2:17
Faith has purpose and influence.
Hebrews 11:7 "...for the salvation of his household,"
Faith is a witness for grace and against sin.
Hebrews 11:7 "...by which he condemned the world by which he condemned the world"
Genesis 6:11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence
Faith is rewarded.
Hebrews 11:7 "...and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith."
6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
Hebrews 11:13 All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.
