“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” (Genesis 7:1).
Text: Genesis 7:1-10.
The sin of Adam and Eve led to the total depravity of man, bringing man under God’s wrath and judgment. With the increased wickedness of man, God resolved to destroy the earth with flood. However, He instructed Noah, a righteous man, to build an ark. This Noah did by faith. On completion of the ark, Noah brought his family and prescribed animals into the ark, after which God released the flood that destroyed the earth. Only Noah’s family and the animals were preserved from the flood. All who rejected Noah’s warning perished in the flood. No youth should perish with sin, the instrument of destruction.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Ark, who saves from sin. As a Christian youth, like Noah, live a righteous life in this corrupt world and be preserved from eternal damnation. Let your life reflect Christ before fellow youths at school, workplace, and in your community. Preach Christ to them, warning them of God’s impending judgment for unrepentant sinners. Those who believe will be saved from the scourge of hellfire.
Live a righteous life
Resolve to live a righteous life in this corrupt world.
Prayer for today
Use me Lord to preach Christ to unbelieving youths.
