Title: “One Man”
SCRIPTURE: Genesis 4:6-7
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. (Gen 6:8 NKJV)
The verses previous to this tell how God was grieved and sorry that He had ever created man because all mankind had become corrupt and evil "continually." Then we come to verse 8 - thank God! One man, Noah, lived above the corruption. One man made a difference for all mankind. Oh true, all who were corrupt and evil were destroyed, but mankind was allowed to continue because one man found God's grace. One man can make a huge difference.
Am I the kind of man who can make a difference? It is the desire of my heart to live above corruption—to be a man of honesty and integrity. Through Christ I have been cleansed and purified. And now, with His help, strength and guidance, I want to be a man who makes a difference for many others.
Lord, may I, as Noah, find grace in Your eyes. In Christ's name - Amen. -AP
