God's Salvation Through Judgment Part 1

December 1, 2019 Speaker: Pastor David Lovi Series: Genesis 12-25: The Life of Abraham

Topic: Abraham Passage: Genesis 19:1–19:14

God%u2019s Salvation through Judgment 1-min

President Harry Truman said that Victory in Europe Day was both "solemn" because so many people died. But he said at the same time that it was "glorious" for victory was accomplished over the evil of Nazism and it was possible to hold at the same time both sorrow and joy over what had occurred. It is appropriate for Christians to feel and hold those similar emotions when we behold the judgment of God. We may feel profound sadness over the loss of those made in God's image and at the same time we may rejoice that ours is a God who has victory over evil and who does not allow wickedness to have the last say.

As we approach our text this morning, we should be keenly aware of our own deliverance and our own joy at our deliverance from the same fate as that of Sodom. For those of us who know the Lord Jesus Christ, what we’re going to learn about as we study God’s judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah is that we ourselves deserved the same judgment they got but for the grace of God in our lives, because of the blood of Jesus Christ, we may be delivered from that sort of judgment. And that should cause us at the same time to hold a sense of sorrow over our own sin and what our own sin caused especially when we think about, for the fact that it caused the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross. And also joy that God reached down and rescued us.
