2011-03-12 - Noah
Noah lived in evil times. Genesis 6:5-6 tells us that man's wickedness was so great that God was grieved, and His heart was filled with pain. God said that He would wipe out mankind. And, then God remembered Noah.
"Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God." --Genesis 6:9
God instructed Noah to build an ark that would save Noah when the great flood came upon the Earth.
Like Noah, we live in a corrupt world. Wickedness, greed, violence, and all sorts of evils are all around us. When God examines our thoughts and actions, how do we measure? Are we known for our actions and not just our words? Are we to be counted as good and faithful servants?
God sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins. And Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit to provide us strength in an evil world. We can rely on God's Word to guide us in our daily walk.
