Grace of God

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Genesis 6:8

Often when we talk about Grace, we think of it as a “New Testament” concept. However Noah found grace in the eyes of God. The original Hebrew word for Grace is “Chen” Noah found “Favor” in Gods eyes.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Genesis 6:9

You might ask how? How can Noah find Grace in the eyes of God? It says Noah was righteous, just, blameless, and he walked with God. I believe Noah was a foreshadow of us after we find the grace of God through Jesus Christ

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Hebrews 11:7

Just like Abraham we see that Noah was saved by faith in God. You might say what does that have to do with me today? You can be saved by faith in Christ just as Noah and Abraham were saved by their faith.

Notice how did God save Noah and his family? By the wooden ark, the cross has become our wooden ark that was the instrument that saved us through faith. The flood not only judged the world but cleansed it from evil. The same way water baptism is symbolic of cleansing us from our sins

You see there is a lot of symbolism or foreshadows of Christ and the New Covenant in Genesis. Just as Noah found Grace , you can also find Grace of God through Jesus Christ

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
