Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
Genesis 6:22
 
What if Noah hadn’t done all that God commanded him to do? What if he had completed the sides of the ark, but hadn’t put the roof on? If Noah had given it a pretty good shot, but then said, “Oh well, close enough,” then we wouldn’t be here. Noah did all that God commanded him. He finished the ark. As great as Noah’s accomplishment was, however, God’s Word speaks of a far greater accomplishment by another carpenter - the Carpenter from Galilee, Jesus Christ.

Noah held a hammer in his hand.
Jesus absorbed the blows of a hammer upon His hand.

Noah built with wood.
Jesus was pinned to wood.

Noah constructed a door.
Jesus said, “I am the door” (John 10:9).

Noah covered the ark with pitch.
Jesus covers us with His blood.

May God give us the ability to understand and remember that we are of all people most blessed. No matter what’s happening in our lives today, we’re most blessed because we’re saved.
