When mothers are expectant it shows. They eat differently, look differently and walk differently! Expectation is hard to hide. Ask a child on the eve of Christmas Day!
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24 v 37-39)
People and Noah. The point is not that the people were sinning and Noah wasn’t. But that the people were living with no expectancy for the flood even when they saw the ark being built. Had they been warned? Yes. But they chose to ignore those warnings and live their lives to the full, unconcerned about what would take place.
But Noah was different. His family were expectant. He also didn’t know when but he knew what.
Knowing Jesus is returning should be enough to live our lives with expectation. If like Noah we choose to do this then it will show in how we do life.
