You probably have heard the story of Noah. You might think of it when you see a rainbow.
Once, there was a man named Noah. Noah and his family were the only good people left in the world. God told Noah that he was going to cause a flood to wipe out the entire world's evil. And God told Noah to build an ark for his family and every type of animal. Noah listened to God, because he knew that God loved him.
This story reminds us how God never wanted sin in the world. He cleaned the world with the flood to give it a second chance. But humans still would not be as close to God as Adam and Eve had been.
The way that the flood removed sin from the world is like Baptism.
Baptism clears our souls of sin, just like how sin was wiped from the earth by the flood. We are baptized to wash away Original Sin. Also, if we are baptized after having committed sins ourselves those sins are washed away. If someone were to die right after they were baptized, their soul would go straight to Heaven.
Baptism also gives us a special grace. It shows us that God loves us and brings us into the Church. It is called “sanctifying grace.”
Water is the sign of Baptism. Water cleans us and keeps us healthy, just like the flood did to the earth.
Words to Remember:

The world was full of sinners.
God wanted to give the world another chance.
The flood reminds us of baptism.
Baptism gives us sanctifying grace.... Please purchase this lesson to continue learning.
