Genesis 6-7

Tom Harding

In Genesis chapter six and seven we have the story of the flood and how God saved Noah and his family from the horrendous destruction by putting them into an Ark. We see the righteous judgement of God against sin and the mercy of God revealed through Christ. The Ark of God is a worthy picture and pattern of how the Lord is pleased to save sinners and justify them in Jesus Christ. Here are five things to remember about how God saves sinners.

God uses means to attain His righteous end. The Ark is the means God chose to save his people. This Ark is a type and picture of our only refuge from sin, the Lord Jesus Christ. There was just one Ark, there is only one way of salvation (John 14:6). The Ark was sufficient to save all that God brought into the Ark, Jesus Christ is the sufficient Saviour of His chosen people (Matt. 1:21).
