October 19, 2018 • Genesis 6-9
Many of us remember the story of Noah and the ark from childhood. We can picture nursery walls decorated with cute smiling little animals making their way to Noah’s ark. Our caregivers read from well-worn children’s Bibles with brightly colored pictures of a rainbow and told us about God’s promise never to flood the earth again. But we’ve all seen the news and heard stories of rainy seasons that continue to bring floods, devastating whole communities. Why does this keep happening after God gave his word that there wouldn’t be any more catastrophic floods? Study the story of the Flood again to remember the grave reality of sin, discover the true heart of God, and witness the dawning of his covenant grace.
