Genesis: Noah I

Genesis 6:1–7:10

Things have gotten bad. Real bad. So bad, that God is full of sorrow. Not anger. Sorrow.

His Image-bearers are broken, corrupt, violent.

And yet it doesn’t sound that unfamiliar all these thousands of years later. Does God see what we do on the weekends and grieve? Does he see our Facebook statuses and get emotional?

Still in the midst of all this crap, a remnant of good exists. His name is Noah. God sees the good in Noah. Just when you think God sees only the bad, here he pays attention to Noah.

When you think the good you do goes unnoticed, consumed in the vileness of university life, know that God sees. And God acts.

So what about you? What do you see?
