Calm after the Storm | Genesis 9:1-17

After the recreation of the world, God blessed and commissioned Noah, demonstrating His high regard for life and human flourishing. This commission included the command to have children, to value human life over animal life and to punish all who willingly take human life. God also covenanted with Noah, promising to never flood the world again and gave His pledge by placing a rainbow in the sky. This promise would allow humanity to flourish without fear. In this lesson we learn that in God’s new world humanity is to value human life for it is precious to Him and to rest under His promise of protection.

  • Humanity must value human life (vv. 1-7)
    • Value human life by producing human life (vv. 1,7)
    • Value human life by prioritizing human life (vv. 2-4)
    • Value human life by protecting human life (vv. 5-6)
  • Humanity must rest under God’s promise of protection (vv. 8-17)
