How does the story of Noah show us God?

Have you had a chance to read and discuss the story of Noah with your family?  (Genesis 6-9) This story gives us an awesome opportunity to talk to our kids about God being just.  He is just.  There is punishment for sin.  All of us sin.  Sin Separates us from God because He is Just.  We can try hard not to sin.  We can try to live a better life.  We can even list people that aren't as bad as us............but none of that covers or bridges the chasm of separation between us and our Just and perfect God. 

In the story of Noah - God shows mercy on Noah and his family.  He provides a way to save them.  This is a beautiful picture of the mercy God shows us.  We can't bridge the gap to God but Jesus did that for us on the cross.  He took our sin and punishment so we could be we could come to God and have a relationship with Him.

God is Just and we see our sin.
God is Merciful and gives us a rescue plan.
