What a great statement about a person who lived on earth?
- Noah was a righteous man – a man always right with God. Gen.6:11 says, the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God said to Noah, “I have found you righteous in this generation.” Gen.7:1 So in a world which is corrupt and where “all the people on the earth had corrupted their ways” Gen.6:12, it is possible to lead a righteous life.
- Noah was a blameless man.- a man without any blame. Though all the people around him and in the world were people with sin or blame, here was a person who was blameless in the sight of God.
- Noah walked with God. Because Noah walked with God, he was able to lead a righteous and blameless life.
- Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Gen.6:22. In a world in which many people find God’s commands difficult to obey or follow, here was a man who “did all that the Lord had commanded.” Gen.7:5 When God asked him to build an ark, he obeyed it though others around him, except his family, thought that it is foolishness.
