Noah faithfully preached salvation
through faith in the Lord until he finished the ark and then God
then loaded the ship with the animals, birds and insects, and the
flood waters came after the door was shut. The ark was seaworthy but
it had no rudder, sails or oars to control its movement and Noah and
his family had to persevere in cramped quarters until God released
them one year later. Noah faced giants and evil all around him
before the flood that stiffened his resolve to serve the Lord but he
began to relax after the flood and his spiritual life took a dive in
the absence of all the previous pressure. Eventually he made the
fatal mistake of letting go of his tight walk with God and pursued
his fleshly desire of getting drunk, cursed one of his sons and that
is the last record of him in the Bible. It's a shame that Noah
started as a hero of the faith but ended his life in defeat.
Remember, it's not so important how you begin your life after
salvation, but how you finish it.
