Remember Lot’s Wife

When describing His return, Jesus warned His disciples to “remember Lot’s wife”. What is it exactly that He wants us to learn by remembering this tragic figure?

“As the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE.” (Luke 17:24-32)

Beloved, the Father’s given us all the time in the world to “inquire of the Lord” (Psalm 27:4) in 2020. He is SO zealous for us to get His insight re: these seven really important questions:
1. What is it that Jesus urgently wants us to remember about Lot’s wife?

2. What (issues, values, sins) do I need to leave behind?

3. Unto what is He leading us?

4. Who destroyed what was behind? Who is this God?

5. Who is faithfully leading us forward? What zeal is in His heart to fulfill His promise to His Son, and to us, His people?

6. Do I have what it takes to make this journey with Him?

7. What adjustments do I need to make to my lifestyle in order to successfully go with Him on this journey in this hour of history? What do I need to do today in order to remove all temptation to be like Lot’s wife on the Lord’s day?
