The Story: The Righteous Live by Faith

Posted by galenamissions in The Story
Genesis 6:8  But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

The story of Noah and the Ark is classic children's church material. Who doesn't love cute little animals going on a boat ride with rainbows? But the children's books tend to miss the dead bodies of all humanity floating against the surface of the water that batters the hull of the ark. The ark didn't save Noah. God did, by giving His Son in Noah's place on the cross. Noah was a "preacher of righteousness" (2Peter 2:5) and his righteousness had come by faith.
Do you believe God like Noah?

The Story: When the Goodness of God is all you have.

Job 1:8-9  And the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?"  (9)  Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "Does Job fear God for no reason?

The story of Job is one that at different levels everyone can relate to. We've all experienced loss, hurt, or evil at some point or another. But the story of Job isn't about Job. The story of Job is about God. Is God true? Is God good? This is what Satan accused against. It's a story that imparts to us that evil is not ultimate. God is.

The Story: A Serious Thing In a Causal World

Judges 16:6  So Delilah said to Samson, "Please tell me where your great strength lies, and how you might be bound, that one could subdue you."

What was Samson thinking?!!! He wasn't, and a lot of the time we aren't either. The Gospel is a serious thing in us, to a world that is so casual.

The Story: Sometimes You Stand Alone

Posted by galenamissions in The Story
Daniel 3:16-18  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.  (17)  If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.  (18)  But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up."

You may stand alone in the crowd, but you will never stand alone in the fire.
