The Past

Separation can be defined as the distance between who you are now and who you were. For if a man belongs to Christ, he is a new person. The old life is gone. New life has begun. Welcome to New Life

St. Luke 17:32-33The Voice (VOICE) Jesus Christ speaks…..Remember Lot’s wife. Turning back is fatal for those who do so. If you try to hold on to your life, it will slip through your fingers; if you let go of your life, you’ll keep it.

Genesis 19:23-26 The Voice (VOICE) Lot and his family arrived in Zoar just as the sun was coming up.  Then the Eternal One rained sulfur and fire from out of the heavens onto Sodom and Gomorrah.  He destroyed both cities, along with the other villages and towns in the valley and all of the people who lived there—even the vegetation was wiped out!  But Lot’s wife never made it; she lagged behind her husband and looked back—despite the messenger’s advice—and turned into a pillar of salt.

Lot’s wife makes a fateful turn. She stops and looks back. No one knows why. Perhaps it is to mourn the past. Perhaps curiosity gets the better of her; but instead of looking ahead to her destination—a place of safety and security—she turns around and looks back at what she has left behind. In that instant, as the messenger warned, she perishes. All that is left of her is a standing pillar of salt.THE VOICE TRANSLATION COMMENTARY
