The way not the subway
Noah and his family were no better than the rest of the sinful people around him, like if you are borne again and walk with Jesus every day, you are no better than murders and thieves around you. The righteousness of Noah was not in Noah, but in the fact that he walked with God every day. You can say that he walked with God, but not every day. Yes, every day, God is walking; if you are not walking with Him every day, then you are behind. Jesus is the way for you to walk on; He is not a train or a car for you to sit in.
God understands and is good
Noah was preaching the word of God and that made him righteous in the eyes of YHWH, God is not demanding perfection, He looks to your heart and notices the intention behind your actions. God influenced Noah with His goodness and Noah led it on to his family.
When the sins Grow
Now the population on earth was corrupt and debased, the moral was low and the earth filled with violence. The world was rotten, it was stinking, and decomposing, there was no rescue. Like when you forget some meat in the fridge and find it, the meat is useless and stinks, polluting everything in the fridge.
Only with God, can we resist the development of sin in life; there is no resistance power in your flesh, or in yourself. Against the sin in us, exploited by the devil, the master of seduction we have no chance. We have lost the battle, however feeling good until one disaster comes after the other.
- Are you a good person?
- When being saved, what should you do?
- How does God estimate you?
- What is the aim of the flesh?
- Can we master the sin?
