As In The Days of Noah – Sunday Thought For The Day
Thursday evening as we were talking before our bible study started, I shared the following question that had came to me earlier in the week as I was thinking about Noah and the Ark.
The question was: “If I had been living in Noah’s day, would I have been living my life pleasing enough before the Lord to have been on the Ark?”
If we are a born again Christian our salvation is assured thanks to our accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior. We who are saved have the confidence that whether we die before the Lord’s return or if we are alive at His return we will be gathered together in the air with Him.
But that doesn’t give us license to live as we want. In Matthew 24:26-39 (KJV) Jesus warned, that at the time of His return it will be: “As the days of Noah…”
Noah and his family were spared because, “[Noah] found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Today the grace of the Lord provides us the opportunity to choose to accept Christ as our Savior. Shouldn’t we turn to Christ for forgiveness of our sins and salvation that we can only receive through Him?
READ: Genesis 6:5-8 (KJV)
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
