Charles Stanley - Walking In The Favor Of God - Part 3
In a world that was sinful and wicked, what was it that set Noah apart? As he concludes his series on "Walking in the Favor of God," Dr. Stanley uses both the story of Noah’s obedience to God and examples from his own life to help us discover how we can listen to, trust, and obey the Lord. When we make wise decisions that honor and bring glory to God, we’ll find His favor in our own lives.
After reading the account of God’s beautiful creation in Genesis 1, we may wonder why He later destroyed the world with a flood. It happened just 10 generations after Adam and Eve. What had changed during that time? The answer is that sin entered the world, and the effects of evil are still being felt in our world today.
For us a generation is about forty years, and in only one or two generations we’ve already witnessed the degeneration in our culture. Prosperity and materialism have increased, and reverence for the Lord’s day and respect and care for others has decreased. To see how much can change in 10 generations we must look back to the year 1620. The world we live in today bears little resemblance to that era.
