Noah’s Ark might not had been as good looking as other boats of that era, And it might not had been as comfortable inside as other boats of that era. It might not had been as big as other boats of that era. But it was the only boat in which one could be saved from the flood (2 Peter 2:5, 1 Pet. 3:20). That was true because it was commissioned and built by God though the hands of Noah (Genesis 6:12-22).
The construction of the Ark was the mind of God at work, with each part being crafted to fit the time of Noah who would be inside the Ark for little over a year (Genesis 7-8). Other boats might have been deployed by the general population to try and escape the flood, but those boats sank and the people perished because those boats had no saving power.
My point in all this is, men may have something they hold dear, but if it’s not established by God, all will be lost (Psalms 127:1; Acts 5:34-39; Matthew 15:13).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
