Text: Luke 17:32. Remember Lot’s wife.
We must understand that as God’s children, we have been called unto righteousness.
Our walk with God is progressive, it is ahead not behind.
God wants us to keep the faith of our salvation alive and maintain a progressive spiritual walk with Him.
Many times, we get distracted by the activities of the world.
We want to be Christians and also be conformed to the world and its pattern.
We want to sing ‘Holy! Holy! Holy! to the Lord and also sing the worldly songs.
We want to worship God in words alone and our hearts fixed to the pleasures of the world.
Remember Jesus said; ‘No man puts his hand to the plough and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God (Luke 9:62).
Again remember Lots wife, how she turned into a pillar of salt when she looked back (Luke 17:32-33).
The Bible says as dogs return to their vomit so a fool returns to his folly. (Proverbs 26:11).
The future is ahead!
The race is ahead!
Therefore we must keep focus to win the eternal price.
We must give to the Lord, the worship due to Him. We must worship in Spirit and in Truth. (John 4:24).
We must fight the good fight of our faith.
Nothing should separate us from the love of Christ. (Romans 8:38-39).
We must keep looking unto Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).
What are those things that lure you back to sin and the world?
Now, write them down on a plain sheet of paper and present them daily to the Lord.
Pray daily for strength to overcome all.
I pray Grace and divine strength to live above all the weaknesses you have written down, in Jesus name Amen.
