"and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;"

As we look at one verse that describes the man Noah, we find that the Lord not only preserved he and his family, but called him a preacher of righteousness. An important attribute as God had called him not only to the task of building the ark, but telling those around him of His righteousness. The Lord called Noah to proclaim the excellencies of God, along with the impending judgement to come. While we are not told of multitudes of converts or mega-church ministry, we see in Genesis that Noah simply did all the Lord directed him to do. Child like faith in obedience brought Noah and his remnant family through the flood, escaping judgement. We should all look to Noah, as to be preachers of God's righteousness as we see the day drawing near.
