Sermon Ideas for Genesis 10

- Nimrod, Mighty Hunter before the Lord - In Genesis 10:8-12, we read that Nimrod was a mighty hunter who accomplished the building of an empire. He was called "mighty before the Lord" for his skill and accomplishments.

For what do you want to be known as being "mighty before the Lord"? What skills has He given you? What situation has He placed you in? What can you accomplish in life to be known as "mighty before the Lord"?

If you use the talents God has given you to the best of your ability, God might see you as being a "mighty mother before the Lord", or a "mighty winner of souls" before the Lord, or "a mighty home remodeler before the Lord".

Notice that Nimrod's mightiness wasn't accredited to anything spiritual He did. Our mightiness before the Lord doesn't just have to be spiritual. If you're using what God has given you to the best of your abilities and in good conscience, He will take pleasure in you using what He's given you, and He will call you "mighty before the Lord" for doing it.

So, do what you do best to the glory of God, and know that He calls you "mighty before the Lord".
