Easter 6

What saved Noah, his family, eight total, and every kind of animal? It would be easy to answer, “God’s grace.” Or “God’s plan.” These are true statements, yet they don’t really tell the whole picture. How about this question, what makes anything float?


God’s Word tells us in 1Peter 3:

God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you,

Noah, his family, and all the animals were saved by the water that rushed and killed everything evil around them. It is that same water, empowered by Jesus’ death and resurrection and given the power to forgive by Jesus’ promise that kills all the wickedness in your life and raises you to new life.
