There is no sugarcoating what happened when Noah moved his family and all of God’s creatures into the Ark God commanded that he make. God was determined to destroy the earth, and every living thing in it. That included His greatest creation: mankind. It was necessary. Because sin and evil had so consumed them, God had to destroy them. So, He did.
1. Do we really ponder the idea that the wages of sin is death? Literally?
2. Do we remember that God is just and that He can bear no evil in His presence, no matter what? Not one little bit?
Challenge: God is justice itself. He will bring justice and righteousness where it is not, which means evil will literally be wiped out. Woe to those who engage in it, for God will have his justice. Pray that we would daily remember to do justice and live righteously with others, as He commands us.
