During Advent, believers commemorate Christ’s incarnation and anticipate His promised return. After sin entered the world, man multiplied his corruption and rebellion against God. As Alistair Begg explains, God sent a flood as a righteous judgment against sin. Not everyone perished, though. Noah found mercy and favor in God’s eyes and took shelter in the ark. While we all face the judgment of God, Jesus came to endure God’s wrath and save all who take refuge in Him.
8But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
