REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 17:28-32


MEMORY VERSE:

Luke 17:32 "Remember Lot's wife."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

The greatest obstacle to spiritual growth is the flesh. When you keep investing in the flesh, what you reap is death (Romans 8:6-7). Lot's wife is a perfect example of a woman who invested much in the flesh and ended up being destroyed.


Our Lord Jesus, talking about His Second Coming in the text above, compared it to the events that happened when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and admonished you and me to remember Lot's wife. What is it about Lot's wife that you are to remember? She was married to a righteous man and into a godly family. Heaven provided her the grace and great opportunities to escape the judgement and destruction coming against her generation. However, she misused the grace and lost the opportunity to be saved because she loved the world and the things that are in the world. Though she was physically moving out of Sodom and Gomorrah as instructed, her heart was still knitted to her idols and gods (treasures, jewelry, gold and silver). As a result, against God's command, she looked back and turned to a pillar of salt!


Today, you and I are saved and have the grace to escape the wrath to come and spend eternity in heaven. Are you not misusing the grace of God the way Mrs Lot did? Are you not married to career, business, spouse and wealth, so much that you forsake worship and service that you owe God? Are you not "looking back" like Lot's wife? If you are guilty of all these, you need to repent.


Beloved, Lot's wife is a type of believers today. Sodom and Gomorrah represent this world that God will judge with fire in the end. The instruction to flee Sodom and Gomorrah and not look back is the gospel of salvation from eternal damnation that you hear and read today. Loving the world and the things that are in it, including idols like Mammon and so on, will make the word of God of little or no effect in your life. Like Lot's wife, many have backslidded. I pray that backsliding will not be your portion, in Jesus' name.


I advise you to purge your heart of all idols, worldliness and carnality. Remember Lot's wife. Repent and turn to God with a true heart so that you are not caught unaware.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

A carnal Christian and an unbeliever will end up in the same destination.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

YOU WILL NOT END UP IN DESTRUCTION, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
