Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Be Fruitful and Multiply"
"Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.”
Oh the Wonder of fruitfulness and multiplication that flow from God's blessing! This is our Breakfast this morning!
I was reminded of God's blessing given to Adam & Eve in Gen.1:28; the same words He now gives to Noah and his family in our text today.
Man failed the first test but God didn't quit on mankind. His Love for His creation was far greater than their sin. He found a righteous man who passed the test of Obedience, and started all over again!
The restoration of Divine order brings God's blessing of Fruitfulness and Multiplication. Man was created in the image of God to be fruitful and to replenish the earth!
I see this as a symbol or illustration of what happened to you and I when we came to Christ.
As a repentant sinner, we ran into the "Ark" of Jesus Christ, (Matt.11:28-30) Who by His Work on the Cross payed our sin debt Himself and drowned our judgement of sin in the water of His Word; (Psa.119:9) by forgiveness, cleansing us from all unrighteousness (Eph.5:26; 1John 1:9). And now old things have passed away, in the flood, and behold all things have become new (2Corin.5:17), as God "opens the door" to a "New and Living Way." (Heb.10:20).
When Divine Order is restored through repentance and forgiveness - God's Blessing of Fruitfulness and Multiplication flows through our life. This is godly discipleship. We reproduce in Others Who We Are In Christ! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
