Headline: Even your mistakes – can be purpose fulin God!
Focus Scripture: Genesis 19:15-26
Main Point: Lot, his wife, and their children were a part of a town that had done horrible things. God decided to punish the entire town by destroying it completely. But, because Lot found favor in the eyes of the Lord, God gave them a way out. He told them all they had to do was flee – to run far away from that place and DON’T LOOK BACK! Unfortunately, Lot’s wife looked back, and was turned instantly into a pillar of salt. Now I know this story is, dramatic, and oftentimes it is told in a way that condemns Lot’s wife. This makes sense, because she disobeyed God. I want you to take note of what God turned Lot’s wife into though; salt. Today salt is produced and sold at extremely cheap prices but that wasn’t the case back then. In fact, salt was one of the most valuable substances in that time period. That means that God still saw her as valuable. He could have destroyed her, and turned her to dust – read your bible! God is harsh before Jesus! But God didn’t turn her into dust, he turned her into the most valuable commodity of their time! God has the power to add value to our mistakes as well, all we have to do is seek him and he can turn our worst moments into the most valuable of lessons!
1 Do some digging, how much do you think salt was worth in the biblical
2. Why do you think Lot’s Wife looked back?
a. Note: this was her home, she grew up in this place and now it was
3. What are some things that you think could cause you to “look back” or to go
against God’s wishes for your life?
a. How can you turn to God instead?
4. Write down one mistake you’ve made and ask God to help you to see how
you can learn from it and grow from it in the future!

Text-John 12 Verse 32
Title-Will you help me lift Jesus?
Synopsis: Jesus is the greatest person to ever walk this earth. He was able to perform miracles that were unheard of and raised people from the dead. He did some eye-opening, head-scratching, and jaw-dropping things. As a result, he could make confident statements that one could stand on. Therefore, could said when I am lifted, I will draw all men unto me. When Jesus is lifted, a supernatural outcome is the norm. So, can I ask a question? Will you help me lift Jesus?
What has prevented you from lifting up the name Jesus?
How often do you call the name Jesus?
Has Jesus been on the back-burner in your life during COVID-19? If so, how will you change that?

Our faith is essential for the living of our days…in general and in light of that is 2020!!! In the text we see faith in action as a father and a woman approach Jesus for two separate miracles. One on behalf of their daughter and the other on her own behalf. These accounts of their faith inaction remind us that our faith can be enacted for personal and/or familial well being, as Jesus is moved to action and dialogue. In each account their faith leads Jesus to speak on their behalf. When was the last time your faith moved Jesus?Twelve years… for one it’s an age for the other it’s a marker of struggle and Jesus was the common denominator… Jesus’ presence makes all the difference!These women, one young and the older mature, have an encounter with Jesus that changes their lives of the rest of their lives. Can you imagine the peanut gallery and their comments of disbelief from the sidelines only to be quieted as Jesus meets the faith of this father and this woman. In the end, as stated in the last verse of our text, the news of these healings and likely the details associated “spread through all that region”.
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
