The Great Flood

Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him.

Genesis 6:22

The Great Flood is an epic story, but that does not mean it is not true. The Bible is filled with reality and the story of Noah is a fascinating one, and important. God told Noah to “build an ark.” Noah was perhaps the most unlikely seaman. He knew nothing about sailing the high seas, and he certainly was at a loss as to how to build a boat. But he believed God.

Noah chopped down trees to build an enormous ark on dry land, far from any ocean, because God was going to send a great flood. Destruction was coming to a godless society. People laughed and mocked Noah, but through his obedience and faith in God, he was the first person in the Bible to be called righteous.

Centuries after Noah lived, the Lord Jesus spoke of him. The Bible says that in the days of Noah, the world was filled with violence. People loved sin—they idolised sin; they were immersed in sin. The flood was not a natural catastrophe but a moral tsunami. God brought judgement on people who disbelieved Him.

Noah’s building project took 100 years as people heard Noah declare God’s warning, but only Noah and his family climbed aboard the great boat with the animals. People scoffed, but Noah believed God and survived the greatest catastrophe the world has ever known.

This is a call to those who do not know that Christ wants to save those from drowning in sin. He wants to lift them up out of the turbulent waters and set them on higher ground. If you have never done so before, do not delay in accepting His salvation.
