Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory or ever and ever. Amen.
God’s plan: to rescue us rom the evil of the present age. He provided an ark of safety – Jesus Christ. God gave us to Jesus, and He redeemed us . Just as the ark rescued the animals and Noah’s family from the flood, we are rescued from this evil world. What does this mean in our everyday lives? We have the freedom to make choices to walk in the ways of God, to use the wisdom of God, to love and not to hate, even as we live in a world that rejects this God we love.
