Letter - Noah

I have enjoyed reading and thinking of Noah again. We read of him being "warned of God," "moved with fear," and "prepared an ark." This was all for his salvation, and the salvation of his family.

We also read that the people of that day were wicked, and that "every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."

We read of the earth, that it was "corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence." And we read of how God viewed His creation that "it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at his heart," and later that He said "I will destroy...."

However, I particularly enjoyed reading of how God saw Noah, "a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." He found grace.

The instruction God gave Noah was especially searching to me "make yourself an ark", words to that effect. Noah was obedient to this, and it was his salvation.

These simple thoughts have been a help to me, and seem so applicable to our lives today.
