It was by faith that Noah built a large boat to save his family from the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about things that had never happened before. By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world, and he received the righteousness that comes by faith.
Obedience to God is love (see post: Love: Walk In It!) Earlier this week the Holy Spirit led me to an understanding of love as obedience to God.
Then, how we grow through endurance (see yesterday’s post).
I can only imagine how much Noah endured, in building the ark … doing things that had never happened before, with only a dependence on God. Yet, because he trusted and was obedient he saved his family from the flood. Not only that, but he received righteousness that comes by faith.
Testing and endurance are never easy .. but if the issue at hand is overcome, the results are unimaginable. Looking forward to such results! Amen!
