By Faith 

Recently, I was in a Bible study group that was discussing Noah and the ark. The account of what happened in those days is rich with topics of consideration. 

Why did God choose to flood the entire earth? 

Why did He choose to spare Noah and his family?

How did Noah have continual faith when God was asking him to do things he didn’t fully understand?

What made his wife and his sons and their wives have faith, as well?

Why did they choose to stick with Noah as he obeyed God and built the ark?
One thing stands out to me in this biblical account. 

Noah obeyed God even when it likely did not make sense to him. 

Build a boat?

What’s a boat?

Rain?

What’s rain?

Gather all those animals?

How?
Noah obeyed God. 

Noah believed God. 

Noah trusted God. 

By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
