Even when we don’t deserve it, God shows us mercy. The story of the flood demonstrates three mercies that God provides for Noah, and ultimately all of mankind. In this story of great destruction, we catch glimpses of God’s merciful, saving nature: God provides salvation, God protects His people, and God is faithful to His word.
We serve a God who will not be mocked; when He says He will judge sin, He will do it. The flood narrative points to another coming judgement. Jesus compared Noah’s flood to a coming judgment upon mankind. The good news? God saves sinners; it’s in His nature to provide a way out for us through Jesus.
