There’s no going back - based on Genesis 19:14


Written: March 3, 2013

Genesis 19:14 …one of the messengers gave this instruction:
Messenger:
 Now run! Run for your lives! Don’t look back or stop anywhere in the plain. Head for the hills, or you’ll die along with everyone else.

Go! Don't look back!
There’s no going back.

The story of Lot and his wife fascinates because many of us can’t help but continue to remember and stay in pasts that have been forgotten in God’s eyes. God is a place of safety, but our flesh is torn between here and now instead of eternal bliss.

Living a life that’s focused on God is such a privilege. What if God let me do life as I preferred on my own terms?

·       What would I be interested in?
·       Who would my friends would be?
·       How I would spend my free time?
·       What I would care about?
·       Who I would care about?
·       Would I go along with popular culture?
·       Would I turn my back on wrong just to be in the right?
·       Would I care deeply about those things that make no sense to most people?
·       Would I put myself out on a limb?
·       Would I share the vulnerabilities that have made me a better person?

Lord, keep me on your one-way road. I never want to go back.
