“And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.” Gen. 7:16
Chapter 6 of Genesis ends with, “Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.” Two more times in chapter 7 it says the same thing of Noah that he did what God commanded him. You can see that Noah was a very obedient man. I guess you could say he didn’t have much choice, obey, build and live or disobey, don’t build and die. Noah built the very thing that saved Him. So too with us, as we obey, we build upon the foundation of our very own salvation, our Ark, Jesus Christ.
