The Woman We Must Never Forget

Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe | July 17, 1977

Selected highlights from this sermon

Lot’s wife was worldly. Fixated on the things of the world, she couldn’t leaven those items behind to follow God.

Her life is a warning for believers. She hoped in the world, but we need to place our hope in Jesus. We must not take our eyes off of Him.

Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message.


Why should we remember Lot’s wife?

Lot’s wife is a warning for us: don’t look back.

Lot’s wife was worldly.

Worldliness means to be fixated on the things of the Earth. It is an attitude of the heart.

Four facts about Lot’s wife we need to remember to be ready when Jesus comes:

-       Lot’s wife had a worldly husband.

  • Lot had a great opportunity to be a man of God because he got to walk with Abraham.
  • God loves us too much to let us do whatever we want to do.
  • God sent Abraham to Lot, but he went right back to the Sodom.
  • Don’t marry someone who is not a faithful spiritual leader.

-       Lot’s wife had a worldly household.

  • Their home wasn’t worldly because they were in Sodom, it was worldly because Sodom was in them.
  • Lot contrasted Abraham.
  • Lot went to Sodom, but he had no influence for God.
  • Lot offers his daughters to the worldly men at his door.

-       Lot’s wife had a worldly heart.

  • Your eyes see what your heart loves.
  • Your outlook determines your outcome.
  • Our loving and our looking go together.
  • God commanded Lot’s family not to look back, but Lot’s wife disobeyed.

-       Lot’s wife had a worldly hope.

  • Lot’s wife’s hope was in the world.
  • We cannot depend on the world.
  • If Jesus came today, how much would you be leaving behind?

“I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back. The cross before me, the world behind me, no turning back.”

Turn your back on the ways of the world and don’t look back.
