Noah, like you, lived in a wicked society.
And so can you!
God’s assessment of Noah’s life?
“You alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this generation.” (Gen. 7:1)
The Lord was painfully aware of societies’ blatant sins as SEX and VIOLENCE dotted the landscape+…as it does ours.
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil …continually…[God] was grieved in his heart…that He had made man…” (Gen. 6:5,6)
Living amidst this decadence, Noah stood up and was counted:
- “Noah found favor in the eyes of God” – That is, he was pleasing to God! (Gen. 6:8)
- “Noah was a righteous man“ – That is, he was lawful and just before God! (Gen. 6:9)
- “Noah was blameless in his time“ – That is, he lived a life of integrity before his fellow man. (Gen. 6:9)
- “Noah walked with God” – That is, he and God were conversant. They had a relationship. (Gen. 6:9)
STANDING ALONE FOR GOD is a tough but achievable assignment which God expects us to accomplish!
My prayer is that you are having a great week!Views: 29
