Theme Scripture: Genesis 6:9
There are many accounts in the Bible that really run along the edge of reality for many of us here today. Think about it – Balaam’s donkey talks, the sun stands still for Joshua in a battle, Jesus rises from the dead and goes to heaven… These are fantastic and unbelievable to many. And then there is the story of Noah. Here is a man around 500 years old who builds a boat to save his family and the animals from a devastating flood! Now THAT is amazing! So, what is there about this story of Noah that rings true for us today? Is his experience a warning for us here and now? Don't forget Part II!
RE: Psalm 40:2 – “He brought me out of a destructive pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock.”
Had Noah left the ark too soon, he would have stepped into a quagmire of miry clay, mud and silt that would have sucked him down into a quicksand-like pit. Time was needed for the earth to dry enough to support even the weight of an elephant.
I wonder a lot about the dinosaurs… why did they exist and what were they for? (but that’s another subject! *G*)
