The Men of God knew how this would end. They knew the city had become so evil that redemption was no longer an option. God was kind, however, he knew Abraham loved his nephew Lot and so they went in to save him. But despite their kindness and the fact they were men of God—the towns men wanted to rape and kill them. The men’s self-absorbed nature prevented them from recognizing their danger. They were more interested in gratification than they were in living.
Fast Forward, its 2015—the world in large part has adopted the same attitude. They would care more about their stuff, technology and entertainment than they do their lives. Story after story of murder, perversion and open corruption fill the airways and we sit back and shake our heads and think what a shame—but no change comes. We have to think like Abraham, not like Lot. We have to try to seek and save the lost, not ignore them and wish for different. It is up to us, like Soddom and Gomorrah—The world looks at God and despises him. Help me, Lord to remain faithful and diligent all the days of my life.
God Bless You
That evening the two angels came to the entrance of the city of Sodom. Lot was sitting there, and when he saw them, he stood up to meet them. Then he welcomed them and bowed with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “come to my home to wash your feet, and be my guests for the night. You may then get up early in the morning and be on your way again.”
“Oh no,” they replied. “We’ll just spend the night out here in the city square.”
3 But Lot insisted, so at last they went home with him. Lot prepared a feast for them, complete with fresh bread made without yeast, and they ate. 4 But before they retired for the night, all the men of Sodom, young and old, came from all over the city and surrounded the house. 5 They shouted to Lot, “Where are the men who came to spend the night with you? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!”
