Extravagant Thanks

Description

How have you acknowledged God's grace towards you? What do you give back?

Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it.

Genesis 8:20, NIV

Noah took one-seventh of all of his flocks and herds and offered them in an extravagant sacrifice to the God of his salvation! Surely the sacrifice was one

  • of praise to God for His faithfulness and greatness,
  • of thanksgiving to God for His grace to save himself and his family,
  • of repentance from anything that would not be pleasing to God,
  • of re-dedication of his life to the One Who had saved it.

Noah must have been totally overwhelmed by the awareness that out of all the people who had been living on Planet Earth, God had saved him. Why? It was just God’s grace! Noah had been righteous and blameless as he had walked with God, but he knew that did not make him worthy of salvation. His heart must have felt ready to burst with the intensity of his gratitude.There could be no other way to express what was in his heart than to give back to God the life that He alone had saved. How can you and I do less?
