Escape For Your Life.

Key Verse

“And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” Genesis 19:17

Text — Genesis 19:14-17


The warning to escape cannot be louder than the one given to Lot and his family. God was merciful to him and his family due to the prayer of Abraham, and sent two angels to warn him, and to carry him and his family out of the destruction that was to come on Sodom and Gomorrah. Despite this, his wife looked back and became a pillar of salt; she was destroyed forever.

The question now to you is, are you like Lot and his family? A songwriter ask:

“Have you counted the cost if your soul should be lost,
Tho’ you gain the whole world for your own?
… Even now it may be that the line you have crossed, Have you counted, have you counted the cost?”

The cost of rejecting Christ is so much that to remain in your sin is not an option. Rejecting Christ is accepting Satan and going to hell fire. It is important and urgent that you accept Christ today to secure your place in heaven eternally. Any sin that will weigh you down and make you look back like Lot’s wife, after the opportunity to escape has come to you, do all you can to take it away by repenting from sin and surrendering your life totally to Jesus; and you will escape.
