The Ark of Safety
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23, nkjv
“And the Lord said unto Noah, ‘Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.’”
The offer God extended to Noah was an invitation to be saved from the judgment that was coming. God has also told you and me that judgment is coming—physical death that ushers us into eternity, where our sin has condemned us to hell. Hell is a place of intense, unending physical suffering, darkness, dissatisfaction, and worst of all, separation from the One for Whom we were created. (Matt. 13:49–50).
At the same time God warns us that judgment is coming, He issues an invitation to come into the Ark He has provided as the means of salvation from it. Jesus Christ is the Ark in which we hide, our Savior from the storm of God’s coming judgment. Have you accepted His invitation to “come in”?
