Luke 9:57-62; Genesis 19; Numbers 14
Looking ahead means committing to Christ.
Commitment to Christ means:
- Choosing Christ over security.
- Choosing Christ over other loyalties.
- Choosing Christ over what’s behind us.
When we look behind us, God takes His blessing away.
- Lot’s wife looked back and she suffered the fate of Sodom. (Genesis 19)
- Israel looked back to Egypt and it cost a whole generation the promised land. (Numbers 14)
When we look ahead and set our minds resolutely on the vision God has given us, God will bless it.
