Scripture: Genesis 6:8-9
In Genesis 6:8-9 we are told, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.” Because Noah walked with God, redemption found him. Noah escaped the terrible destruction that man had brought on the earth. Thus we begin to see a pattern. This pattern is one where righteousness and walking with God saved man from the penalty and destruction that came upon mankind due to sin. If God can find a man who will walk with Him, then God Himself enters into covenant with that man to save, to deliver and to set free. Noah was such a man and as a result through God’s grace and love, man was preserved from utter judgment and total destruction. This saving grace came because one man was willing to walk in righteousness, wisdom and purity before God. Surely God will find many more righteous ones in the last days!
