The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.” – Genesis 8:21
When Noah, his family and the animals got off the ark, Noah built an altar to praise God – and God was not angry with human kind anymore. The anger at sin which had caused the flood was now over, and there was peace between heaven and earth.
As a sign of God’s remarkable promise to mankind, He gave us the rainbow.
I love the rainbow, don’t you? When you see it, are you reminded of God’s promise to us? His promise to keep loving us and not destroying the earth again is important.
The rainbow is really represents God’s covenant with His creation. It’s in the sky after a storm to remind us that He will never again destroy His creation. We should be most grateful that we’ve been spared and God desires to draw us unto Himself instead of do away with us.
He is hopeful that we will want to draw closer to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. He sent Christ to earth to die on the cross – the lamb of God washes away the sins of the world. We only have to believe and ask Jesus into our hearts and lives.
You don’t have to fix anything, just ask Jesus to come into your life and He will show you your sin and what needs fixing – and He will help you with it. People can’t fix other people’s sin because we are not a higher power – but Christ can fix sin because He is THE Higher power! He’s worthy of all our honor and praise. 🙂
