Luke 17:32 (KJV)
Remember Lot’s wife.
What we are most likely to remember is that Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.
- No looking back on God’s call upon our lives
- No looking back at the loss of the things of the world
- No looking back to the life that used to be but isn’t anymore
The context has to do with the coming of the Lord. Jesus said of that hour, Luke 17:32 (KJV)
Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
It’s not so much you must die to self to be saved but that we die to self in order to look up to the Lord. The Christian cannot afford an affection for the world.
- A house
- A position
- An income
- Even family
these must never cause our eyes to turn away from Christ.
I do not believe a born again Christian (there is no other kind) can ever lose their salvation. I have, however, witnessed several turn into a lifeless pillar of bitterness and spiritual uselessness because they would not let go of the past.
