Noah’s Faith

Our Bible verses today tell us about Noah. He lived at a time when there were a lot of evil things happening on earth. But “Noah pleased the Lord” (verse 8). Noah “was a good man all his life, and he always followed God” (verse 9b).
God told Noah to build a big boat. Why? Because He was going to send a terrible flood over all the earth. Noah built the boat, just as God told him to do. Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives, and many animals went into the boat and were safe.
Hebrews 11:7 tells us more about Noah and his faith. “Noah was warned by God about things that he could not yet see. But he had faith and respect for God, so he built a large boat to save his family. With his faith, Noah showed that the world was wrong. And he became one of those who are made right with God through faith.”
We must have faith to receive God’s gift of salvation. Then God expects us to grow in our faith every day. Be like Noah — depend on God and His promises.
