Genesis 7:1-4, 17-24; 8:1-5, 13-16, 20-22 (day five)
Over many years of Student Ministry, I have heard students echo these thoughts: “I am the only Believer in my class”, “I am the only Christian on the team”, “I am the only Follower of Christ in my section”. I also hear adults declare the same dilemma. “I am the only Believer in my office.” “I am the only Christ Following parent on our team.” Noah and his family knew this same feeling. Genesis 7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time.” We often feel isolated and alone in our faith because of a culture that has become “Post-Christian”.
There is encouragement found in Genesis 7 for “righteous” (that comes from a relationship with Christ) people who “walk with God” (in step with His Spirit).
God PROTECTS believers. If we have the Lord and follow Him, our souls are safe.
God PROVIDES for believers. If we trust God and His love for us, we already have what we really need.
God REMEMBERS believers. He is always aware of our circumstances and our condition.
