Day 4: Flood

Our passage for Day 4 is Genesis chapters 6-9
Today we will study the account of the Great Flood.
How is Jesus like a big boat?  Watch this 10 minute devotional to find out!

Here is an excellent sermon about the flood: “Failed Reboot” by pastor J.D. Greear at The Summit Church in Durham, NC.

In this sermon Pastor Greear explains that the “bow” God places in the sky is not what we may think.  The word for “bow” here is the weapon, as in “bow and arrow.”  The implication is that God has laid down his weapon, placing it in the sky, when he promises never to flood the earth again.  The bow, from our perspective, is pointing at the sky, back at God, pointing to his ultimate answer for judging human sin and rebellion.  He will take the punishment himself, when his Son Jesus bears the cost of sin through his death on the cross.  WOW!

Harry Reeder, PCA pastor, spoke at a conference at our church last weekend; he took the thought of the ark & Noah (& his family) & said we want to be “left behind” like Noah et. al. were when all others were taken away by the flood. This lesson about the ark as our
Lifeboat seems to go right along with that! At the second coming, we want to be in THE lifeboat, Jesus, and be left behind to then dwell in the new heavens & new earth! :-)
