Noah and the Flood

April 27, 2023 | Pastor Robert Lee
Passage: Genesis 6:9-18

In a broken world, are we pursuing a life of integrity? In this message titled Noah and the Flood, we are challenged to reflect on our lives and how we can live a life that honors God just as Noah did in the time of the flood.

Genesis 6:9–18, 22
Genesis 7:11–17, 21–23

6:9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11 Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence. 12  And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13  And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14  Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch. 15  This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits. 16  Make a roof for the ark, and finish it to a cubit above, and set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17  For behold, I will bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life under heaven. Everything that is on the earth shall die. 18  But I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you… 22  Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.

7:11  In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst
forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened. 12  And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13  On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, 14  they and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature. 15  They went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. 16  And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in.

17  The flood continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth… 21  And all flesh died that moved on
the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22  Everything on the dry land in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23  He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark.

► 5  And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him… 9 as God had commanded Noah… 16 as God had commanded him. (Genesis 7:5, 9, 16)

► 8  And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day…” (Genesis 3:8)

► 37  For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38  For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39  and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man… 44  Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:37–39, 44)


  1. What were some of the highlights and lowlights of your week? Everyone needs to get a chance to answer!
  2. As you listened to the teaching of God’s Word tonight, what stuck out to you? And how does God want you to respond to what you heard?
  3. What are some things that our culture tends to value MORE than our personal integrity and character before God?
  4. On a scale of 1-10, how motivated are you to live a life that honors God, both when your alone and in public? What motivates you?
  5. In a world obsessed with outward appearances and people’s opinions, how does a young person go about pursuing a life of integrity?
  6. One of the reasons we seek to live with integrity is because Jesus is coming back to judge evil once and for all. Do you really believe that God is going to judge you and the world one day? Or are you more like the people in Noah’s day?
  7. Pray!
