Like Moses, Jesus leaves His royal throne to be poor and redeem His people. Arrives in humble circumstances. It isn't a basket, nor called an ark, but performs the same functions of those and like a chest holds the greatest treasure of all.
Like the Ark of the Covenant, carries God's most precious treasure, offered up freely to those who will accept the gift.
Like Noah's ark, He arrives to bring the peace and rest promised of Noah and that which the angels sing of. Like the door of the ark, He is the only one, the only way, truth, and life, the only way to salvation
Like the time of Moses, a ruler feels threatened and tries to kill all the baby boys. Once again, God brings deliverance against all odds
What can we learn from this "ark?" God brings deliverance, against all odds, in the most unlikely of vessels. The manger seemed an unlikely choice, but this God who brings deliverance again and again arrives in a manger, this chest, this ark, carries a reminder of what God had promised, fulfilled, and what He is about to do going forward.
This deliverance isn't just for Israel or those shepherds in Bethlehem, it's for you!
Story of the man rejecting rescue from a flood.
If you haven't accepted Jesus as Savior what are you waiting on? He sent you three arks and a manger
If you've accepted Him but haven't joined a church, there is still more room on the boat, you don't have to row alone!
If there is something in your life you need to throw overboard, that doesn't belong in the ark, in your chest, God can help you throw it over.
We'd love the opportunity to pray with you and help you get things right with God as He leads you.
