1 Peter 5:6 (ESV)
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.
The Bible tell us that a long time ago, before you and I were even born, everyone in the world was evil except a man named Noah. Noah was humble. He loved and worshiped God while no one else did.
What made all the other people so evil? Well, it all started with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve disobeyed God. Instead of following God’s directions, they did what they wanted. Then lots of time passed, and many things happened. Everyone turned away from God. They did things their own, selfish, evil way—not God’s way. Their hearts were cold because they had no love in them. Noah was the only person who lived and loved God.
God had a plan to make things better. First, he asked Noah to build an enormous boat. This boat was almost as long as two football fields and as tall as a building with three floors. The boat, which God called an ark, wasn’t large enough for all of the people in the world; it only fit Noah, his family, and two of every kind of animal in the world. Then, God told Noah, his family, and the animals to live in the ark while he washed away all the evil in the world and made it a better place.
The ark is like Jesus: It saved Noah because he believed in God. The ark also covered and protected him from destruction. It also game him a new life to start over again. When we give our heart to Jesus, we tell God we believe in Him. He loves us so much that He saves us from eternal destruction and gives us a new life that no one can take away.
Remember that Jesus saved you and loves you. Whenever you are feeling scared or hurt of the bad things of this world, you can always go to Jesus for help.
Dear Lord, thank You for saving us from the evil that is in this world. Thank You for forgiving us for our sins. Thank you for the new life You give to us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
