Genesis 9 opens with a new hope. Remember that the world has been completely flooded as a judgment for the people’s wickedness. The only creatures who survived this judgment were Noah and his family along with the animals that were taken on to the ark with them. Now Noah and his family have exited the ark and God made a covenant with humanity that as long as the earth exists he will not destroy all flesh. We are left with a new hope for humanity because sin has been judged and wickedness has been cut off. Now people will learn God’s message and all people will live according to their life purpose: be an image bearer of God throughout the earth.
