Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The Bible describes Noah as a righteous man, blameless in his generation, who walked with God and did all that the Lord commanded him (Genesis 6:9, 22). Can you think of a higher honor? I'm unsure what they will write on my headstone when I pass from this life to be with Jesus, but I would love to be worthy of what the Bible said about Noah! How about you? Wouldn't it be great to have written of us, "May all who pass by this grave know that the person's body buried here did everything just as commanded"? By grace, I believe Jesus will say this of us before the Father because of our faith in him (Colossians 1:22).

My Prayer...

Holy God, we fully acknowledge that we are saved by your grace and not because of any significant or righteous things we have done. At the same time, Father, we surely want to honor you with our lives and show others the difference your gracious love makes in our lives, especially when we obey. Bless us, please, dear Father, to be more worthy of the description of Noah. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
