2) God isn’t willing for the wicked (or the righeous) to perish (2 Peter 3:9). Sad, sad, that bitter wail, “Almost” – but lost. But what I want you to remember tonight about Lot's wife is three things. My text this evening is from Luke's Gospel chapter 17, as we read, but just one verse - verse 32: "Remember Lot's wife". Nine out of ten times they Like her sons in law, Lot “seemed as one that mocked” (Genesis 19:14). Which will you be? Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt. Now the cities of the plain were these cities of Sodom and Gomorrah whose crime rate had soared and reached an all-time high, and we read within God's word that Lot pitched his tent toward Sodom. Her second sin was not only her slackness but the fact that she doubted God. The Bible says, “His wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt” (Genesis 19:26). She just couldn't keep up with the rest of them, and there are many people who are guilty of that sin in our land tonight: they're slack in their Christianity. Noah's age was eating and drinking and marrying, normal sensual pleasures if you like. And so Lot and his family went to live near the cities of the plain, where sin and degradation were so great. In days when many are disillusioned and seeking for more, through the ministry of David Legge we seek to provide Bible-based teaching and preaching which will lead you into a deeper relationship with God. God's word is clear, and sadly she found it out to be clear, for as she turned the look of her eyes was only pointing in the direction that her heart was facing, because she had left her heart in Sodom. We know she was the wife of Lot – Lot, who was the nephew of Abraham. You've been touched in your conscience on one occasion, you've been touched in your heart, perhaps at a meeting like this - and yet so many touched can still linger, and can be lost! “Go thy way for this time; when I find it convenient, I will call for thee” (Acts 24:25, KJV, NIV). You can write to Dr. Hymers in any language, but write in English 8) Lot plead with them to let his family escape to Zoar instead of retreating into the mountains. It is about his wife! Luke 17:28, 29. Dr. Hale said, “It is not possible to love God and the world at the same time” (ibid. During the days of Noah population grew significantly - we know that from Genesis 6:1. But Lot and his family grew more Well, she heard the judgment warning from the angels, and she was aroused in her heart to realise that she was in danger, and she arose early in the morning with her husband and she began to travel. And there she lost everything, even God Himself! II Peter 2:7; II Corinthians 6:14). You can have an eternal home in glory when you die. Come out from them! III. Now imagine this, because here's another of her privileges - not only was she married into this family, a godly family that knew the way of salvation, but she was in the closest bonds of matrimony with this righteous man, Lot. Now many preachers castigate old Lot, but you know Peter tells us that Lot was a righteous man. Don't just remember her privileges, but remember her sin. Abraham and his men went to rescue Lot and brought him back again. But then she saw the bright lights of the city. The Saviour Himself said that it would be similar to the days in which Lot lived. “Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. First of all: remember her privileges. The word of God stands sure, John 3 and verse 3: 'Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God'. She knew that God was willing to accept men and women through the sacrifice of blood. His answer is to warn them to be ready for the coming of the kingdom is like the flash of lightening that instantly lights the sky. He took his ease just like the rich farmer. She looked back toward Sodom, and was at once struck dead. The Bible says. Here's a lesson if there was ever one: you can't have the Saviour and have your sin at the same time. Date written: November 4th, 2006Scripture ref: Luke 17:28-32. Remember Lot’s wife!” (J. C. Ryle, Expository Thoughts on Luke, volume 2, The Banner of Truth Trust, 2015 reprint, clothbound, p. 183; note on Luke 17:32). Here's why you shouldn't do it! Others trust Jesus and are converted. What was it she thought? 6) It appears that they had to leave everything behind. Well, can I put it very simply - three things, if you mean them from your heart and do them: one, admit that you are a sinner, that you have offended God, and say that to Him: 'Lord, I confess I am a sinner, and if You give me the power, I repent of my sin and I turn from it and am willing to forsake it'.

And yet she perished. She had heard first-hand about the gracious covenant that God had made with Uncle Abraham. Objectives: That each would learn from Jesus’ command to remember Lot’s wife. He talks both about Noah and Lot in this passage, and both Noah and Lot lived in days of religious compromise, days of moral declension - not unlike our day today. Is there someone here this morning like that? 2) Her relationship with her family was ended. You want to go to church and be accepted as a Christian. Whatever your privileges have been, God's word says: 'If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him'. The Bible says, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). And there she lost her life. 3) He uses the example of Sodom and Gomorrah. But you must leave the people of Los Angeles behind you – the girls at your school in tight pants and painted faces – the young men smoking and looking at pornography – Look at them!
