her last thought…
. . . And the Bible says, “she was turned into a pillar of salt!”

Why salt Pastor? Why wasn’t Lot’s wife just incinerated? Why a pillar of salt? I’m glad you asked that question. You see, Lot’s wife’s disobedience was more than just looking back. It was an outright rejection of God. God had no choice but to also make an example of her. He made her into a pillar of common salt.

Now watch this: Jesus says: "We are supposed to be the salt of the earth, but if the salt looses its savor, it’s not good for much of anything except to be trodden under the foot of me" And so it’s clear here that God when we disobey God we lose our place in God’s kingdom and become nothing more than dead and useless things!

I’m gonna leave you alone in a minute, but my sisters and brothers... don’t let the same thing happen to you that happened to Mrs. Lot. God is looking for obedient people who will help season the world. If God has delivered you from something, don’t look back – for the sun is setting and pretty soon it’ll be dark. And so, whatever sin you’re in: “It’s Time To Get Out And Stay Out!”

. . . And the thing I like about God is that He CAN bring you out! I wonder, is there anybody in this house can testify that only God brought your out of some stuff? Are there any former “Used to be’s in here?”

– You used to get high on dope, but now you’re high on God!
– You used to fall down drunk, but now you fall out in the spirit!
– You used to cuss folk out, but now you tell them “May the Lord God Bless You Real Good!”

I don’t know about you tonight, but I’ve learned that the only answer to my problems is God!
– The only way out of my valley of distress is God…
– The only cure for my brokeness is God…
– The only solution for my worry is God…
– The only hope for salvation my your soul is God…

Church... I’ve learned that:
– Only God can give me peace which passeth all understanding…
– Only God can teach me to say, in whatever state I find myself, I’ve learned to be content…
– Only God will stand me you, through thick and thin…
– Good and bad…
– Right and wrong…
– Only God is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother…
– Only God will be there when all others turn their back and walk away…
– Only God will go with me through the fire and flood, The storm and the rain…

Yes... God has a plan of salvation, Hope and deliverance for your life! But I’ve learned that God has only one plan of salvation! God does not have two plans or three plans. God does not have one plan for rich people and another plan for poor people…

God does not have one plan for black people and another plan for white people. But God has one plan – and it is not a customizable plan where you pick some from column A and some from column B… but God has only ONE PLAN! And that plan, is salvation by grace, through
