Remember Lots Wife

Luke 17:20-37, Genesis 19:1-29

Prior to Genesis 19 the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were captured and taken away.  Abraham went after the captured people because of his nephew Lot and freed them and brought them back.  However, they soon returned their old habits and their destruction followed.

Observations from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

  • When the angels told Lot to hurry up and get out he still drug his feet and had to be urged on.

  • Lot's wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.  Why, apparently her heart was still back in the city.

  • God alone has his hand on creation.  When that day, the second coming, comes it will be sudden.  Just like with Noah and the ark and Sodom and Gomorrah when God says that's it there will be no escaping his judgment.

  • Are you ready for that day?

A couple of comments about sharing with the unsaved and/or the deceived.

  • Don' argue with them, just talk to them the way Jesus did.

  • Don't try to accommodate and change the scriptures.  Rather encourage them to change their live to align with scripture.

God is in the business of changing lives.
