Since our area was hit with Hurricane Irene today, our family held church at home. My husband prepared a little mini sermon for our family. It was a very sweet time.
He related the door on the ark to John 10:9, where it says Jesus is the only gate to salvation. The only door that leads to eternal life.
The ark had only one way in-the door.
And after a certain time it was shut.
And those on the outside perished.
Just like Noah, we must obey-God has given us all the instructions we need (as he gave Noah).
We have the Bible. It is all we need. Not man’s interpretation, not rituals, not man made rules.
It is God’s Word that we need.
Nothing more, nothing less.
And His Word clearly states we are to obey and to accept Jesus as our door to eternal life.
It is so hard to always obey especially when amidst adversity.
Just like Noah, though, we must do what God tells us.
I am so grateful for a simple church service at home with my family. For a husband sharing wisdom.
For a storm, that made us really look to Him.
