Part 1 of 5. God is a God of signs because he is aware of our limitations. He knows that we as humans are forgetful and need signs to remind us of truths we already know. God also uses signs to teach us spiritual realities that are hard for us to comprehend but through a sign are easier for us to grasp.
Part 6 of 6. This sacrifice of Noah should point us to Christ who, “loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
Part 5 of 6. So this promise of never destroying all the living creatures again is in direct response to the depravity of man. God is saying that he would have the right to do the Flood Part 2, but he will refrain.

Part 5 of 5. “By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.” Hebrews 11:7.
Part 4 of 5. John MacArthur said, “Peter here uses baptism to refer to a figurative immersion into Christ as the ark of safety that will sail over the holocaust of judgment on the wicked. Noah and his family were immersed not just in water, but in the world under divine judgment. All the while they were protected by being in the ark.”
Part 3 of 5. JR Miller “. The ark was a chamber of peace floating quietly and securely in the midst of the most terrible ruin the world ever saw! The Lord’s shutting in of his people—was to save them.”
