Why Not Harsher Treatment?
God wants more than mere outward obedience. He want our hearts.

What Noah Did Not Do
Noah did not direct that a monument be erected in his honor. He built an altar and worshipped the Lord God. 
04:42
May 10, 2021
Coming Home
We live after the deliverance; but still wait for the fullness of our salvation to be experienced. 
04:08
May 6, 2021
Twenty-Five or Six to Four?
Do you know what time it is? God's time? Your time? When they intersect great blessings emerge. 
03:44
May 5, 2021
Waiting for the Sprig
Let's remember Noah's 150 days, his additional 2-½ months, and his 40 more days. And the dove. And the sprig of the olive tree that the dove will bring. I'm believing that the wait will be well worth it.
04:20

Day 152
What do you do while you wait for the final victory celebration to begin? You don't lose hope.
04:15
May 4, 2021
Day 151
Is today the 150th day of waiting? Maybe tomorrow will be day 151...a day of God's remembering.
04:42

Ruthless!
Let's be real about God's people and the world's need for mercy, grace, and salvation.
04:10
April 30, 2021
What do we really know?
We know precious little about God - and even the flood and Noah's ark. But the little we know is precious.
04:30
April 28, 2021
What's the big deal?
Do you obey God because his commands make sense, or because you respect his character? 
03:39
April 26, 2021
The Breadth of God's Provision
How much do we really need along life's way? 
03:41
April 23, 2021
Noah and...
The story of Noah and the ark is really the story of Noah and God. We all have a place in the Story of God...through Jesus, for his glory, and our eternal joy.
03:14
April 21, 2021
The Power of One Little Word
God will destroy the world, but he will save Noah and his family and the animals. Times may be difficult BUT God is always at work for our good. 
03:33
April 21, 2021
Decks, Cubits, Doors, Rooms, and Windows
God goes beyond just the basics - even when directing Noah to build the ark.
03:25
April 19, 2021
Do you want to be the exception?
Too often we want to fit in rather than stand out from the crowd. God wants people to be exceptional in their love, grace, godliness, and mercy. Noah was such a man. Jesus is The Exception for all time. 
04:37
April 19, 2021
What would make him do that?
We do what we do because we believe what we believe. What do you believe? Are you showing it in everyday ways? 
03:12
April 16, 2021
The Perfect Exception
Evil is easily seen and all too often obvious. God's people need to be exceptions to that. And when we fail, we can thank God for the perfect exception in Jesus!
04:13
April 14, 2021
Object Lesson Writ Large
How do you learn the hard lessons of life? Your own school of hard knocks? Or through the mistakes of others? Noah has something to teach us about God's ways - far beyond the flood. 
04:32
April 14, 2021
Why are you sorry you made man, O God?
What kind of grief did God experience in these ancient days when the evil of men and women grew unfettered? 
04:45
April 13, 2021
Angels, Warriors, and Heroes
Who are your heroes? Large and in charge people? Godly and humble servants? The Hero of Heaven is mighty to save...and we need such a hero desperately!
04:54
April 12, 2021
How do you spell relief? "N-O-A-H"?
Noah's name means relief, rest, or comfort. But relief is not spelled N-O-A-H, or C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N, or S-P-O-U-S-E. There is, nonetheless, even here a prospect of something more.
04:30
April 8, 2021
How long do you want to live?
Lots of people want to live to a ripe old age. How old do you want to get?
04:23
April 7, 2021
No Exceptions
Do you make exceptions? Do they become the new rule? What about God. Be glad he doesn't make exceptions to his promises we receive by faith!
03:38

930; 912; 910; 895, But Who's Counting?
Would you want to live 930 years? Or are these lifespans in Genesis 5 simply symbolic? Even at face value, there's a lesson here, reflected in Psalm 90:13: Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
03:15
April 6, 2021
The Facts of Death (Make the Message of Easter ever More welcome!)
Genesis 5 has a refrain, "And then he died." It's a result of sin, and it makes the message of Easter ever more welcome!
03:11
April 4, 2021
Easter Fear, Love and Trust
Easter joy is abundant, and rightly so. But the fullest experience of Jesus' resurrection will lead us to fear, love, and trust in the God who saved us through Jesus' life, death, and resurrection!
03:04
April 4, 2021
The Most Profound Prayer of Good Friday
Do you know the three prayers of Jesus on Good Friday? Which of these is the most profound?
03:27
April 2, 2021
The Power of Prayer
Is it my fervent intensity or God's gracious promise and name that gives prayer its power?
03:29
March 31, 2021
When is it NOT a good time to pray?
Is prayer ever not appropriate? Don't be too quick to answer, even though praying in Jesus' name is always appropriate. 
03:58
March 31, 2021
Ruthless Arrogance
What do we do when we're confronted with bullies and those who take advantage of their power for their own good and to our or others' harm? Pray! 
04:16
March 30, 2021
Sin's Creeping Encroachment
A little nibble here. A larger taste there. Pretty soon you're downing giant gulps. That's the way with sin, and we see it unfolding in these last verses of Genesis 4
04:16
March 29, 2021
Did you grow up around here?
We all grew up east of Eden. That means the best we might experience in this world is but a dim reflection of the Paradise of God to which God invites us.
03:29
March 25, 2021
Ripples
Our actions have ripples. They can be ripples of love and grace or ripples of harm and danger. 
03:59
March 24, 2021
Ripples
What are the impact of our actions on others? Are you aware of how your actions might lead others toward or away from Jesus?
04:25
March 24, 2021
Better Bloodspeak
How are you with the idea of blood? How does Abel's blood compare with Jesus' blood? Listen as it speaks...
04:25
March 23, 2021
Far Better than Karma
Do you really want repayment from those who have wronged you? Are you ready to repay your harm of others? There is a better hope in the blood of Jesus.
03:48
March 22, 2021
"Am I my brother's...?"
Are you your brother's keeper? Careful with your answer. Listen to find out.
