Build Your Ark

Make you an ark - Genesis 6:14

    The storm was coming. Dark, ominous clouds were gathering on the horizon. It was going to rain for sure, just as God had said.
     Noah was a preacher of righteousness – II Peter 2:5, who found grace in the eyes of the Lord – Genesis 6:8. Faithful Noah had wisely heeded God’s command to construct an ark that would be his and his family’s salvation during the coming storm.
     There are storms all around us today, and like Noah, we must heed God’s command to build a relationship with Him through Messiah Jesus that will carry us above the turmoil of a world writhing in its sin.
     Our ark is constructed by faith in the atonement and the assurance that God loves us and has made a secure provision for our soul’s survival in His Son.
     No matter what storms we must face because of the sin that has scarred and ruined this planet, the ark that is our Savior, Jesus, will carry us above the turbulent waters of this world to set us upon the pinnacle of eternal life. – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. – John 3:16.

By faith Noah being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. – Hebrews 11:7
