Genesis 8:9 - Salvation through reconciliation.

But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
Just as the dove returned to the ark, we like the Prodigal Son must realize that our lives are in jeopardy, confess our sins, and return home (Luke 15:17-20). We return home by returning to God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Isaiah 55:7; Romans 6:23; 10:13). Those that endure to the end will be saved by the hand of God, just as Jesus put forth his hand to save Peter from the water (Matthew 10:22; 14:31) and as Noah put forth his hand to save the dove.
