Earth under Water

Although we know the reality of God's judgment against sin in events like the flood, we also know the reality of God's salvation of sinners in people like Noah. God gives us reminder after reminder that if we continue a lifestyle of sinful choices, the end will be destruction, but those reminders along with Jesus's death on the cross are evidences that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God offers His mercy to each one of us every day; sin and the flesh are ever with us; it is for us to turn from our sin and embrace His mercy through faith to find salvation not only from sin's presence from also from its power. May God glorify Himself in our faithful and frequent repentance. Read More

Favor with God

Anyone can claim to walk with God, but how can any of us know who among us is actually doing so? Enoch walked with God but we are given very little else about him in Scripture to determine how it could be determined other than his faith recorded in Hebrews 11. Noah is said to walk with God, and immediately following that record, we are told the details of the ark and the report of Noah's obedience of everything God told him to do. Anyone who claims to have a relationship with God, but fails to live in the Spirit and obey His commands, is a liar; that is the message of 1 John 1:6, "If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth." May we walk in the light as He is in the light and obey His word as Noah did. Read More

Men of Renown

It is easy to forget the judgment of God in a world where it seems so far away. We tend to ignore the judgment of God because it isn't fun to think about, and we can ignore the clear examples of it in death because it is so common place. But when we forget about or minimize the judgment of God we are in danger of facing it, for when we ignore it we are prone to give into the lures of our flesh and sin. Only a little over a thousand years into earth's history, humanity had done just that and had given into their lusts such that God's wrath could no longer bear their evil. In the description of the earth before the flood, we see a rejection of God and His mercy; may we trust God's Word and His mercy so that we might avoid a demise similar to Noah's society. Read More
