You Had One Job


Genesis 6:7
So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”

Matthew 7:13,14
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

God gave Noah an assignment

Genesis 6:14,15
So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.

Your work BEGINS with your family:
Genesis 6:18
But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.

Psalm 199:9
How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word

1 Corinthians 11:1
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

Do not get distracted by the wicked
“What people say or think about you does not determine how successful you are. What determines how successful you are is your obedience to what God has told you to do.”

Complete the task at hand

Obstacles that will get in your way of completing the work:
Not seeing results
Getting your “feelings” hurt
Constantly looking for a new assignment

"Don’t be so focused on the output, rather be focused on your input."

Once completed- look for the next assignment
Genesis 9:7
As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.

Matthew 9:35-38
“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.'”
