Genesis 6.11-7.24 | Great Wrath, Greater Promise
Topic: Old Testament Passage: Genesis 6:11– 7:24
Even though the story of Noah’s Ark records the building of a great boat to survive a great flood, it is not about either. The story is about the great judgment on a world of sinners contrasted with the great salvation of a family of sinners made possible by a great God. In the plainest of terms, we learn that God does not merely grieve, hate, and punish sin—He hates grieves, hates, and punishes sinners. But, mysteriously at the same time, he favors, loves, and saves sinners.
