"But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt." - Genesis 19 V26
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new." - 2 Corinthians 5 V17
We all know the story of Lot and how God showed mercy on Lot and his family, but Lot's wife disobeyed God's command and she became a pillar of salt. We too often have the tendency to look back and grieve over our past sins and face the guilt all our life even when we know we are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Christ died for us and He paid the price for all our sins and we are now a new creation with a new life. For those in Christ, their past sins are blotted out and God has cleansed us from all our unrighteousness. Let us live like the children of the Most High and not look back but keep our eyes upon Jesus.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
