When my mother answered the door, her neighbor said, “Mrs. Gibson, did you know your house is on fire?” Flames were shooting out the upstairs windows. Do you suppose she stayed where she was? Escape was the only sensible option.
A far greater danger!
John the Baptist urged his hearers to flee from the wrath of God (Matthew 3:7). Peter writes of escaping “the corruption that is in the world by lust” (2 Peter 1:4).
My mother felt no need to leave until alerted to the danger. Will we be motivated to escape from certain damnation until we see the consequences of our sins?
Thank God, He has provided a way out! (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:36-41).
