I can never repay the gift of God’s grace that saved me from my wretchedness. But what I fear is ever denying the gift. Or of not heeding God’s call with a “Here I am. Send me.”
I take for my example Noah. Noah was a righteous man who “walked with God.” Genesis 6:9 suggests that he may have been the only human being of his kind on earth in that age, the only man who sought to follow God’s will and who could be trusted with God’s mission to preserve human and animal life on earth. Noah was faithful. In the face of probable derision and scorn from his community, he built an ark and preserved life on earth.
Noah’s story raises this question: If God looked for one person who would be faithful to Him in a specific task, would His eyes rest upon us?
“I know of nothing which I would choose to have as the subject of my ambition for life than to be kept faithful to my God till death.” Charles H. Spurgeon
