God of the Boat

I very badly wanted to title this sermon “God in the Boat” but that’s technically not true.

Last week, in God in the Garden, we began a series on the biblical truth that God is near. The Great Flood is an example of God’s judgement. The world and everything in it was made by God and he was disappointed by what he had made. Judgement is God’s divine right. But Noah’s Ark is a story about mercy and grace. Noah found favor with God and by following all of God’s instructions his family and life and on earth was saved. Some folks want to focus on the God of the Old Testament being filled with wrath and smiting people. Genesis 6, 7 and 8 is about something else.
