Going Back

May 30, 2021

Lot’s wife – Luke 17:20-33

  • Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt when she looked back – Genesis 19:26
  • Judgment was coming
  • she wanted her old life back

People want to hold you to your past – and sometimes you hold yourself in the past.

  • Hebrews 8:12 (NLT)– And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.
  • God removes our sin as far as the east is from the west – Psalms 103:12
  • Pharisees remember the past

God’s people are Pressing forward, not backward

  • Philippians 3:13-15– Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do,forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
  • Sometimes we think we’ve arrived – it doesn’t mean there was some good stuff from past
