The Bible describes the Great Flood that took place inthe days of Noah when all the animals and most of the plants were destroyed by this judgment of God. This is a story about the flood told alphabetically.
Only those animals and people on the ark survived to replenish the earth. It must have been a frightening experience for them and yet we know that God took care of all their needs. Today, each of us are descendents of those eight souls that were aboard the ark. God's provision aboard the ark of safety provides us with the opportunity to see and enjoy all of the marvellous animals that abide in our world today. Because Noah was faithful and did what God commanded him to do, each of us has the opportunity to accept the Lord as our ark of safety for all eternity.
The faithfulness of Noah is in sharp contrast to many other men and women in the Bible. Because Noah did what God asked him to do, we have the opportunity and the privilege of enjoying life today and going to heaven by believing in Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour.
God's judgment was so great, that God sent this great flood to wash away sinful man. Noah and his family were spared as were those creatures that Noah took with him in the ark. Again, we can see the high price of sin and the judgment of God upon the wickedness of man. But we also see God's love and provision for the future by providing an ark of safety to preserve life upon this earth. Because Noah obeyed God and built the ark, we can enjoy eternal life. We need to follow Noah's example and do what God asks us to do and live for him, each and every day as well. The results are far reaching indeed.
