Read: Genesis 6:9,11-14,18, 7:17-24, 8:1,18-21, 9:12-17
Think: What wickedness do you see in the world and in yourself on a daily basis? What made Noah stand out to God? What would it look like for you to “walk in close fellowship with God” the way Noah did?
Hope: Even though Noah was saved from the flood because of his righteousness, he was quick to falter after they reached dry land. As much as we wish we could be righteous, the Bible says that “no one is righteous—not even one.” —Romans 3:10 (NLT) The Good News of Jesus is that “God made Him who had no sin, to be sin for us (on the cross) so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV) What a relief!
