Noah’s obedience showed that he:

  • would do what he was told by God – even if the instructions may have seemed silly to us (Genesis 6:22).
  • was faithful to complete a very big job (Genesis 7:16).
  • valued God’s opinion more than everybody else’s opinion (Genesis 6:9).

Interesting aside:

In building the ark Noah condemned the world (Hebrews 11:7). During construction, the ark stood as a mute criticism of everyone else – as obedience to God often does today.
