THE LOVING GOD FOUND NOAH (GENESIS 6:1-12)

A. THE WORLD WAS DEPRAVED ( Genesis 6:1-7 )
Though God’s eyes can not behold evil, yet, in the midst of wickedness, His eyes can, and do spot the righteous. If we keep ourselves for God. He would identify with us and favour us in this world of wickedness.
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the heart, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
One may wonder why God would allow man to continue to multiply on the face of the earth fulfillmentnt of His earlier blessing, despite man’s fall.and waywardness. God’s love truly in action.
This increased tempo of man’s wickedness notwithstanding, God’s eternal redemptive programme has remained intact. His undying love has kept Him intervening .
Most saddening and discouraging is the fact that the Lord saw that the world was now evil – not what He had intended it to be. Yet He still had compassion on the dying man.
God was grieved (filled with pain) that the people He had created and loved became so sinful, and no longer loved Him. The grief here can be compared to that of a father who finds his most beloved son misbehaving, with impunity. I hope you are not still one of those grieving Him today.
This divine decision didn’t come from bitterness or hatred against humanity. Rather, God’s love wanted to purify the earth and make it more conductive to live in for the righteous.
Christ is our righteousness. In Him we trade our depravity for His restoration and life. Accept His Lordship now.
B.THE LORD SAW NOAH. (Genesis 6:8-12 )
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Noah had chosen to work with God, a thing that was obviously made possible by God’s enablement. God’s grace and love equipped him to represent God’s righteousness. Are you praying for such a grace?
The grace of God enabled Noah to live differently from others. Grace found him as he deliberately obeyed God. This was God’s love and grace in action.
How can any man walk with God if God does not bring him closer to Himself. God’s love located just Noah, bringing him closer to fulfil the essence of God’s love.
Be conscious of your new status in Christ and do away with earthly entanglements so as to keep enjoying the love of God.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL IN JESUS CHRIST NAME.
