from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

 

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. (Genesis 6:8)

Noah

In a time of moral darkness and corruption, Noah walked with God. When God wanted to destroy the human race, Noah found favor in God's eyes.

When we complain about the world in which we live, let us learn these important lessons from Noah's life.

1.        That it is possible to walk with God in spite of surrounding lawlessness and godlessness.

2.        That Noah was obedient when God asked him to accomplish a strange and difficult task.

3.        That Noah warned his neighbors of impending judgment, thus offering them a way of repentance.

4.        That Noah was protected and saved by God, who honored his faith by an everlasting promise.

When the waters of judgment covered the earth, Noah was safe within the Ark. What a wonderful illustration the Ark affords of Jesus Christ who preserves us from the fire of judgment which will come to our world.

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ..." (Romans 5:1).

There is hope - for you and your family, whatever the circumstances may be.
