Noah and Grace through Faith
As we read the Bible, we find that nearly 1,700 years after creation the world had become a wicked place. In fact, the scriptures teach that man was consumed with wickedness. All of his thoughts were evil continually. Things were so bad that God saw fit to destroy man, and He was sorry that He had ever made man. Just when it seemed that all hope was lost one man found grace in the eyes of the Lord. God extended grace to Noah, but it was through faith that Noah benefited from it.
Living Outside of God's Authority
Jesus identified that there are only two sources of authority: God or man. Everything that we do is going to come from one of these two sources of authority. We will do things under the authority of man or under the authority of God. What we must realize, however, is that only one of these sources is a true source of authority. With this in mind, I would like to discuss our everyday life and the concept of "Living Outside of God's Authority."
The Standard of Faith
The importance of faith in the life of a Christian cannot be stressed enough. The Bible repeatedly mentions the importance of faith. Without faith we cannot please God according to Hebrews 11:6. The just are to live by faith according to Romans 1:17. We acquire faith through the word of God. That means that the Bible is our standard of faith.
