Noah and his family had finally emerged from the Ark after the flood, which had effectively wiped the earth of all living things except Noah, his family, and the animals carried on the ark. The first thing Noah did after leaving the ark was to build a fire and sacrifice an animal to God. God was pleased with the aroma of the sacrifice and vowed to never again cause the demise of all living things. God loves us despite our bent towards evil and devised a way for us to be worthy to stand in his presence.
Questions for further thought:
1. Are you aware of that plan?
2. What will you do to be part of that plan?
Challenge: Send up a pleasing aroma (prayer) to God. Thank Him for His love and grace and mercy. Ask for His forgiveness and live in it.
