No Going Back. July 1
Remember lots wife. Luke 17:32
This is a good verse to memorize. One reason it is short and easy. Another reason it says volumes. Lots wife is famous for having been delivered from the destruction, God was pouring upon sodom. But she looked back as she had been told not to do. She became a pillar of salt. I’ve seen a few pictures while studying thru the years of pillars of salt that is said, could be her. I’m not sure any of them are but one thing is for sure they are all frightening. You and I who have been saved by faith in Jesus Christ, who have left the sins of the world around us and are forgiven, we also will be tempted to go back. To the sin or worldly desires of the fleshly man. The truth is the world systems have fallen into the judgements of God and will to a greater degree. For the Christian, we are saved and forgiven. Jesus gives a warning to those who believe, it is Remember lots wife. It is possible thru temptations, trials, problems, responsibilities or even pleasures, to look away from Christ and drift back into a sinful world. Thus the warning. But also the promise that God has plenty ahead for us to focus on and to hope in . Keep your hearts , minds and desires there. And do not look back. Hebrews 11:39 says : But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition, but of them that believe, to the saving of the soul.
