When God commanded Noah to build an ark, the Bible says that Noah did ALL that the Lord commanded him (Genesis 6:22). In other words, Noah loved God. We can deduce this from Jesus’ words – “If you love me, [you will] keep [do] my commandments.” (John 14:15). To love God is to DO ALL that he commands us to i.e., express our faith in action.
Points to ponder:
Noah loved God and built an ark for the salvation of God’s creatures. God so loved the world that he made his Only begotten Son, the Ark, that whosoever abides in him, shall not be drowned in sin and death, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Because of his love, God made Jesus, the Ark of Love, for the salvation of God’s creation – including you and me.
Genesis 6:22 (KJV)
22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
John 14:15 (KJV)
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
James 1:22 (KJV)
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
