Genesis 6:8 KJV 1900
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah Was Different

There was a great heart difference. "Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord." In the heart of Noah there was a great difference, for instead of sin reigning, grace reigned.
He was a justified man. The whole world stood condemned before God. How was he justified? "By faith Noah..." He was justified by a living faith in the living God. He was different in his standing.
We read that he was "perfect in his generations" (Genesis 6:9). Imputed righteousness in the heart finds its expression in implicit righteousness outwardly.
I read in Genesis, chapter 6 and verse 9, "Noah walked with God." The whole world was out of step with God. But, praise God, he is a man walking with God! Noah was in the minority. He stood alone; he walked with God.
Mark that work in Hebrews 11: he saw "things not seen as yet." The whole world lived and worked for material things. But Noah's eyes were on things above, not on things beneath.
We read that he was "moved with fear" (Heb. 11:7), and he "prepared an ark to the saving of his house." "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Ps. 111:10), and in Noah's day there was no fear of God before the eyes of the people. But here in a world where men didn't fear God, is a man standing that his motives were different from the motives of the men and women that lived and witnessed around him.
He "prepared an ark to the saving of his house" (Hebrews 11:7). We need fathers who will live to "prepare an ark to the saving of their house," to get their household saved by the grace of God.
