These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, by their nations; and out of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.
Genesis 10:32

One family.
Noah’s family.
Became many nations.

A picture of God’s abundant grace and faithfulness to His covenant.
Men’s hearts had not changed. Every intent still evil.
But God’s heart does not change either.

After the flood of His wrath.
He blessed all with grace.

From this one family.
Comes Jesus.
Who endured the flood of God’s wrath once and for all.
That we might know the sheer magnitude of His grace.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits — to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also… It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ… 1 Peter 3:18-21 NIV

Father God, open my eyes to Your amazing grace in a world where men’s hearts are only intent on evil. Open my heart to the good news of Your grace poured out through Jesus. May I be a picture of Your abundant grace to those who are lost.
