“and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones,” (2 Peter 2:7–10, ESV)
Lunch Bite started a few weeks ago as part of a discussion with a friend and the need we have to be stirred up to be in God’s word and for it to be brief but something we can dwell upon. Mostly scripture and little commentary. With that and trying to stay focused on that purpose I wanted to share this passage today.
For Christians we look at the world and we see the way people reject, mock, and even curse God and his salvation. Our souls can be greatly troubled by the wickedness we see just as Lot was troubled. Our souls can even be entrapped by the wickedness. If you are feeling tormented in life by the wickedness of the world you live in with all of its temptations focus on the fact that just as God delivered Lot He will deliver you.
One caution don’t look back after being delivered. Remember Lot’s wife she stands as an example of one who was lured by the wickedness and in her heart and she would miss this life. She missed God’s rescue.
