God is calling us to make a new beginning with Him.
After Adam and Eve had sinned, things went from bad to worse. These were very dark days (Genesis 6:5-7). Then, we read these wonderful words, "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord" (Genesis 6:8). There was to be a flood - but there would also be an ark. The flood speaks of God's judgment (Genesis 6:17). The ark speaks of God's salvation (Genesis 6:18-20). In our generation, we see so much sin. It's all around us. It's within us. Is this all that we see? No! We also see the God of our salvation. The God of grace is reaching out to us. He's calling us back from the brink. He's calling us to make a new beginning with Him.
