Story of expert who lived among brown bears. For 12 years he lived among the bears stating they were harmless. One day bears turned on him and killed him. At the time he needed to escape, it was too late. He needed to learn what he learned in death in life.
2 cities wiped off the face of the earth due to sin, the warning: escape for your life. If Sodom and Gomorrah were such bad places, why was Lot living there?
-Lot commits first sin of selfishness and chooses the best land when presented with the choice presented by his uncle, Abraham. Lot pitches his tent toward Sodom, where the men are known there for its wickedness. Lot sees the great pastures between Jordan and Sodom, probably with no intention of staying in Sodom at first.
-Now we see Lot dwelt in Sodom. Why?
-Had he made Sodom his home? Yes, he offers angels a place in his HOUSE where his family and goods are kept.
Christians don't step into sin overnight. Christians slowly slip into it. Which direction are we headed towards right now?
What's the lesson?
-The blessed man- doesn't walk, sit, then stand with the ungodly
We have to ask ourselves "why am I here in the first place?"
-When we find ourselves where we shouldn't be out influence has already hurt others.
Here, when Lot instructs them to leave, his sons in laws think hes joking.
-Sin is so deadly we ought to escape for our lives
-We get comfortable living in sin/brown bears. When someone tells us to leave, we say we will one say. Here we see Lot LINGERING. Why do we do that? We don't realize the danger were in.
-We don't know the negative influence we've already had on people, when we will die, or when the world will end. Santans device is to tell us to linger.
-Lots wife turns to salt. She looked back. We have to decide to walk with God or the world. Can't have both.
Jesus looks at the heart and knows our motives. We're all in a sinking boat on fire unless we find the escape.
-"How shall we escape if we neglect salvation?" We won't. There's no other way.
