Even though the external flood couldn’t deal with the internal depravity of man, the fragrance of Noah’s sacrifice—a sweet-smelling savor unto the Lord—overpowered the stench of sin. A burnt offering was made, and that made all the difference. Every Old Testament sacrifice points to Jesus Christ—the ultimate sacrifice, the Lamb of God slaughtered on the cross for the sin of the world. It’s the fragrance of the work of Christ that overrides the stench of my depravity. The flood didn’t clean up the culture. The flood didn’t solve the problem. No, it was the sacrifice that caused God to say, “Neither will I again smite every living thing” (Genesis 8:21). You might feel terrible. You might feel like you’ve blown it badly. But even now you can worship God, and He will smell a sweet savor. He knows our imaginations are evil continually, yet He still finds sacrifice sweet.
God doesn’t command you to worship Him today, but some of you will.
He won’t command you to worship Him tomorrow, but some of you will.
And in so doing, you’ll bless Him.
