Have you ever taken an unpopular stand at school, work, with your friendsor family? Did you feel confident or unsure? If someone makes fun of you, do you let it go? When we are Christians, taking a stand for what we believe in often unpopular.
Noah and his family were the only ones who survived the flood because they obeyed God’s command. The earth had become evil and corrupt. God told Noah he was going to flood the earth. Noah was ridiculed for building the ark. He took a stand for the Lord and built the ark as he was instructed to do. The Bible says that every living thing that moved on the earth perished except for Noah, his family and the animals on the ark.
We might suffer persecution for be a Christian, but we also have an eternal inheritance that no one can take away. God made a covenant with Noah to never Flood the earth again. So, when you see a rainbow remember the everlasting covenant that God made.
“Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.”
