07 Don’t Forget

Audio: mp3

When you compare the righteous with the wicked, the wicked come to heaven’s door knocking expecting to come into heaven thinking the door should be open for them. The righteous look to heaven and long to enter in but in heaven no evil thing may enter yet the Lord says to the righteous, those who look to heaven conscious of their condition; “Come in.” The person may say, “Lord, no sin can enter into heaven. You are calling me to come in but as far as I understand nothing bad can go into heaven.” The Lord says, “Yes, I know that so come in.”

To the righteous the grace of God is a marvel that those who are conscious of their shortcomings, failures, and weaknesses, would be allowed to come in. These are the two mentalities of human nature. These are what we have been considering in the gospel of Genesis and the peace and the humility that come with accepting God, the Creator, as your God.

We are prone to forget so the Lord is always communicating to us, “Remember.” You can never remember something unless you previously knew about it. Some people say that the Sabbath day arrived at Mt Sinai for the first time. The fact that it begins with “remember” is proof that it didn’t. ”Do you remember, back in creation, do you remember that day? Keep that day holy.”

The Bible tells us to remember something else.  

Luke 17: 26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Is this present truth? Are we in the last generation? We have seen it very clearly on so many aspects and levels that if you doubted one you couldn’t doubt the other. If some of them were not so clear in your mind, on every single angle the world is screaming at us; nature is preaching to us, society is telling us, politics is telling us Jesus is coming. As this is becoming a very real thing, so are these words;

Luke 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

This is a very important lesson. When the Bible says, “remember” that means we must remember it, we must not forget it. When it talks of Lot’s wife, Jesus is simply saying to those in the last days study Genesis, remember Lot’s wife.

As we consider verse 31 where it speaks of someone on the housetop, don’t let him go and get his coat or his cloak or his things, just leave; this text on raw value has somewhat been misunderstood in that some have considered that they may be driving along and hear the Sunday Law has been passed and they are off. They start running down the street, not knowing where they are going, daring not to pick up their coat because the Bible says not to.

If we understand that in the context of remembering Lot’s wife, he that tries to save his life will lose it. There is a principle involved here and it’s not in not grabbing a coat to keep you warm as you need to prepare to go for the Bible says that they not go out in haste.

Genesis 19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

The angels had to prod Lot along, “Come on, get going. Start moving.” I wonder what the angels are doing today, as in the days of Lot. Is God trying to wake some of us up and arouse His people saying, “Come on, get going. Get prepared, lest you be destroyed.” These angels had a direct work to do.

Genesis 19:16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

What action was this? This was an action of mercy. Sometimes the Lord has to take us in hand and really give us a push and a shove to get us going. How do we respond to the Lord when He pushes and shoves us in the way He wants us to go? We can say, “Lord, why are you disturbing my nest, why are you making me uncomfortable here?”

God is merciful to do that. If we understood what the ramifications are of staying put for that little bit longer, we would understand that God is so merciful just to get us to move.

Genesis 19:17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. 18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord: 19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

When God calls us to come out of the city and go into the bush do we say, “I don’t want to go into the bush. I might starve there, I might die there and I don’t know what to do in the bush, I’m in the city.” Does the Lord save someone to kill him or her? Did the angels pull Lot out to send him to the mountains so he would be killed in the mountains? No, but Lot thought that God had been merciful to him in saving him but pleaded, “Please don’t send me to the mountains, send me to another city.”

Genesis 19:20 Behold now, this city [is] near to flee unto, and it [is] a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, ([is] it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. 21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

God is so merciful. He remembers we are dust. If I was in the position of leading them out I would have been so annoyed at Lot, I probably would have sent him back to the city saying, “I just saved you to take you to the mountain and you are complaining? You see it as a burden, as though for me to send you somewhere else would be extra mercy?” But the Lord understands and takes him to the smaller city and says he will not destroy it for Lot’s sake.

This shows the compassion of our Saviour when we comes to us in our difficulties. Sometimes we don’t make sense in what we are asking, but the Lord will show even more mercy. This is the character of God, but we shouldn’t be like Lot. I’m sure if he went to the mountains he would have had a better blessing than where he wanted to go.

Genesis19:22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. 23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. 24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. 26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Lot is delaying thinking that he doesn’t want to leave but he doesn’t want to be destroyed either as he was so connected there. He had family and many possessions and was not the kind of person to live in the bush. He was very hesitant to leave the city. In our society there are many people who are very hesitant to leave cities.

Remember Lot’s Wife

The lesson we need to learn here is to remember Lot’s wife. When God says something don’t go back and get your things.

One of the fugitives ventured to cast a look backward to the doomed city, and she became a monument of God’s judgment. If Lot himself had manifested no hesitancy to obey the angels’ warning, but had earnestly fled toward the mountains, without one word of pleading or remonstrance, his wife also would have made her escape. {CC 54.2}

We don’t know how many hours the delay was, but there was a delay. This delay was a long enough delay for Lot’s wife to change character over the line of no return. Our characters do not stand still. We are progressive, we change and every day we add something extra to our character. In a few days we are in essence somewhat different to what we were a few days ago.

When Lot makes his delay, something happens in his wife that makes her someone a little bit different to who she was and now she is lost. If Lot didn’t delay she would have been saved. The condition of the heart would have been different. Because of slowness and a looking back, pondering about what they were losing, she missed out. Jesus says remember Lot’s wife. What does that tell you and me today?

It communicates that we must not muck around, we must not play games today. We have not time to lose. God is very serious. If we procrastinate and ask God to call on us a better day when I may be feeling better tomorrow about making this choice thinking it will be a more convenient day to make the choice than today, tomorrow never comes. I become a different person and then when I would like to make the change, I will leave and my heart is stuck behind me in the city because I delayed. I will lose my soul all because of slowness, tardiness, lack of enthusiasm and drive for obeying God’s requirements.

The influence of his example would have saved her from the sin that sealed her doom. But his hesitancy and delay caused her to lightly regard the divine warning. While her body was upon the plain, her heart clung to Sodom, and she perished with it. {CC 54.2}

Physically she was out of the city but emotionally her heart was attached to the city of Sodom. People can come and sit in the pew physically and still be in the world. We can still have a heart for worldly things. We can go to church and behave nicely and as soon as everyone is gone we lock the door and shut the curtains and start putting on our worldly music or doing something that is not approved of God because it was our old taste. Just because we sit amongst God’s people it doesn’t mean our heart is sitting on the seat.

When Jesus says if you are on the rooftop don’t go down and get your things, this is talking about your attachment to the things that you want to get. I don’t want to leave to go to the mountains because I have things that I want to take with me that are the result of all my effort and energy. This is what we must not do.

This is not to say you can’t pick up your sleeping bag or something that is needful for the purpose of living. We are talking about heart attachments to the world. This is the issue when Jesus says these things. He says it and tells us to look straight at this story. When Lot’s wife looked back she was bodily out of the city but her heart was still there.

 She rebelled against God because His judgments involved her possessions and her children in the ruin. Although so greatly favored in being called out from the wicked city, she felt that she was severely dealt with, because the wealth that it had taken years to accumulate must be left to destruction. Instead of thankfully accepting deliverance, she presumptuously looked back to desire the life of those who had rejected the divine warning. Her sin showed her to be unworthy of life, for the preservation of which she felt so little gratitude. {CC 54.2}

What is the most valuable thing to you, your children, family or God? Lot and his wife had children still in that city. Mothers can understand her. This is something that the devil is going to use in the last days. This situation will be repeated. Satan would love it if you were entangled in a very successful life here on earth and with family who do not want to follow God. When you start running, you will have all these silken cords attached to Sodom and the further you go, the more you will want to look back because those silken elastic bands will draw you and you will be dead if you look back.

We should beware of treating lightly God’s gracious provisions for our salvation. There are Christians who say, “I do not care to be saved unless my companion and children are saved with me.” They feel that heaven would not be heaven to them without the presence of those who are so dear. But have those who cherish this feeling a right conception of their own relation to God, in view of His great goodness and mercy toward them? Have they forgotten that they are bound by the strongest ties of love and honor and loyalty to the service of their Creator and Redeemer? The invitations of mercy are addressed to all; and because our friends reject the Saviour’s pleading love, shall we also turn away? {CC 54.3}

Because your family or friends or children don’t want to follow the Lord, shall you then not follow God also? This is the question. You have to make a choice. Remember Lot’s wife.

The redemption of the soul is precious. Christ has paid an infinite price for our salvation, and no one who appreciates the value of this great sacrifice or the worth of the soul will despise God’s offered mercy because others choose to do so. {CC 54.4}

Others will despise that love, but if we will spend time with God enough to attach to Him properly to see that He is our closest family and best friend and is everything to us, how could we leave Him? God is calling us one-way and Sodom is calling us another. Who has the strongest pull? You can know that by how well you want to serve God and how much hindrance you have because of your family.

The best chance to save your family is for you to follow the Lord. Lot lost his wife, why? He lost his children and then he lost his wife. Why did that happen? He delayed, if he didn’t delay, if he was firmer to the Lord than before he wouldn’t have lost his wife.

It is better to serve God wholeheartedly than to do a half-hearted service because you will lose more doing it that way. If we will serve the Lord without reservation we have the best chance of saving our family. If that won’t do it then nothing will do it. Don’t think you should compromise or be more involved in their worldly activities just to woo them. You need to follow the Lord wholeheartedly.

Then the angels bade him arise and take his wife and the two daughters who were yet in his house and leave the city. But Lot delayed. Though daily distressed at beholding deeds of violence, he had no true conception of the debasing and abominable iniquity practiced in that vile city. He did not realize the terrible necessity for God’s judgments to put a check on sin.

We grow up in cities and get accustomed to how people act. As we get accustomed to this, we say it is wrong but we don’t hate the sin that is practiced with perfect hatred. We say it is their choice, but I wouldn’t do it. Do we not like sin only if it’s me doing it but it is okay for someone else to do; a law for them and one for me? We should hate sin at all times.

Because we see and watch it all the time and it is always in our face, we become numb to the fact that it is sin. This is what happened to Lot. He didn’t run as he could have because he didn’t see the exceeding sinfulness of sin.

Who wants to prepare for Jesus’ coming fast? We need to understand the exceeding sinfulness of sin and not have connections to those who love the exceeding sinfulness of sin. Our haste out will be fast, as we understand this.

Some of his children clung to Sodom, and his wife refused to depart without them. The thought of leaving those whom he held dearest on earth seemed more than he could bear. It was hard to forsake his luxurious home and all the wealth acquired by the labors of his whole life, to go forth a destitute wanderer. Stupefied with sorrow, he lingered, loath to depart. But for the angels of God, they would all have perished in the ruin of Sodom. The heavenly messengers took him and his wife and daughters by the hand and led them out of the city. {PP 160.1}

There are many in the church who at heart belong to the world, {RH, January 9, 1894 par. 10}

Is this you, is this I? This is what we need to examine.

…but God calls upon those who claim to believe the advanced truth, to rise above the present attitude of the popular churches of today. Where is the self-denial, where is the cross-bearing that Christ has said should characterize his followers? The reason we have had so little influence upon unbelieving relatives and associates is that we have manifested little decided difference in our practices from those of the world. {RH, January 9, 1894 par. 10}

We have such a little influence on our family because we are trying to hug them in our practices and they don’t respect you. They say that you claim to be a Christian but you still do what we do. When you make a stand, when you make a decided difference saying that this is what I have chosen to do in my life and you let them make their decision to walk in another way, we make a clear line and a distinct difference. In that action we will have a better influence upon your family. They will respect you and may start to think perhaps they should go there, because if they love you, they may also follow the Lord. Even if they don’t follow the mark needs to be made. The best chance to win them is better than the worst chance.

Parents need to awake, and purify their souls by practising the truth in their home life. {RH, January 9, 1894 par. 10}

This marked distinction should be done in our home, not just when everyone is watching. When the door is shut and the curtains are pulled, when no one else sees, this is where the distinction should begin.

 When we reach the standard that the Lord would have us reach, worldlings will regard Seventh-day Adventists as odd, singular, straight-laced extremists. “We are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.” {RH, January 9, 1894 par. 10}

We think that we won’t have influence upon them if we do that and think we need to be like them and invite their music into the church so that when they come they will not have culture shock and that we need to gently let them feel that we are coming to them. Our attitude and our love need to be on their level, we need to have compassion and understanding but our lifestyle and practices should never be compromised for others.

We need to have compassion and understanding on the ignorant and on them that are out of the way because we ourselves are also compassed with infirmities; what they struggle with we also struggle with. We have different practices, but the base understanding of temptation is the same, therefore we can understand and relate with them on that level but we are not to change our practice and lifestyle or our love for Jesus Christ. Here there needs to be a marked distinction between us and all the other churches. How is this decision made?

Making an Undivided Decision

We saw this in the story of Lot and his wife. They were half there and half over here; they didn’t know whether they were coming or going. The angels had to pull them out otherwise they probably wouldn’t have left. This is the recipe for disaster.

James 1:8 A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways

There is nothing solid in a double mind; you can’t put weight upon it. Lot’s condition is with us today in the Laodicean experience because we are neither hot nor cold. If you take a bit of hot and a bit of cold you get a nice warmness. God doesn’t like that. If you don’t want to follow God stay in Sodom and be cold, don’t pretend. If Baal is God worship him, but if God is God then worship Him, don’t try to have a threesome relationship, it doesn’t work. No man can serve two masters. The Lord will not want to be part of it, He will not take another man’s wife. If you want to be married to the devil serve him but if you want to let the old man be crucified and that death make of none effect the covenant of marriage, then we can be married together. Make a choice. Decision is a very important factor.

Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

That means we make a decision. For example, to be baptised and become involved in the church and then if we start to look back and think the things we used to do were not so bad and start employing some of them in our private time at that point we are not fit for the kingdom of heaven. This is one of the steps that we need to be decided on we can’t be divided. Make your choice of what you are going to do right now and stick with it.

Putting Decision into Action

When it comes to doing, we often think the Lord needs to give me more grace. Thinking I will pray that the Lord will help me more. When we are required to do something, we put the onus on God needing to give us something more so we can do it. In other words, we blame God for not doing it.

If God would reveal to me a transgression in my life and I see that I need to improve in that area and I ask the Lord to give me strength to do it and nothing gets done and I pray again for the Lord to help me to do it and again nothing gets done and I say that when the Lord really impresses me then I will do it. In essence I am putting the onus on God for the reason of it not being done.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ:

Not that He will bless us, but that He has blessed us with all spiritual blessings.

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

His divine power which is the gospel in the line of salvation unto salvation, He hath given us all things relating to our spiritual walk – our victories and anything that will get us to heaven.

Romans 8:31-32 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?  32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Has Christ already been given to humanity? Has God already given His only begotten Son? If everything comes through Jesus Christ, if with Him, He gave us all things, has He already given us all things? What we need to do then is take hold of it.

When you take hold of something that is a very practical thing to do. You put your arm out, move your fingers and grab it. It’s been given, it’s right there, its in Jesus Christ. Have you accepted Christ as your personal Saviour? Have your received Christ? Have you accepted the gift? If you are wondering if you have, you just need to do it to know. If you say, “Lord, I will take you” and make it a purposeful decision of your life, willing to go all the way then you have done that you have taken hold of every spiritual blessing there is to get.

When we get Jesus Christ and all the gifts that come with Him, i.e. the Spirit of God and all the power of heaven and we are baptised in the name of the three dignitaries of heaven, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost who have avowed themselves to be at service of those who want to overcome sin, now we need to do something.

1John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

This is something little children can understand. In simple terms, this means that you are not doing the right thing until you do the right thing. If you are not doing it, then you are not righteous. This makes the gospel very practical.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

If we would say,” Yes I’m righteous in Christ” but my life is unrighteous then little children don’t be deceived, he that doth righteous is righteous, that is the equation. If we want to escape out of all the corruptions in this world through lust (feelings) we must do something in our life, not just think and pray about it.

When we have to do something we say the Lord needs to give me more blessing. God has given you everything already. God has poured out all of heaven already.

Why aren’t we doing it, what is wrong with us?

The tempted one needs to understand the true force of the will.{MH 176.1}

The Bible says very clearly;

Philippians 2:12 work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.

God is proposing to put into you the desire to do it. How many have the desire and will to follow Him? How did you do that; are we born again by the will of the flesh? No, by the will of God.

When it says work out it doesn’t mean sit down, scratch your head and try to work out the problem of your whole life. It means to put some outward action to what is done internally. God will work in and so you just have to take that which is done in and put it on the outside. Jesus said this process is the exact method when He spoke of the Pharisees trying to wash the outside of the cup to make the inside clean. It didn’t work that way. He said to clean the inside of the cup then the outside will be clean. When God works in and I work out, that is the best method of overcoming sin.

If we want to come out of this world and make haste in that, we need a firm consolidated decision according to our will and to actually do it.

 The will is the governing power in the nature of man, bringing all the other faculties under its sway.

Your arms and your legs obey your will. If you want to go for a walk then your legs will start doing that. As you will it, the powerhouse will bring all the other faculties under its sway.

The will is not the taste or the inclination, but it is the deciding power, which works in the children of men unto obedience to God, or unto disobedience. {CG 209.1}

When you disobey, you are disobeying from your will. The world says, “If it feels good then do it.” Can you do that which is inside of you? If God will work in your will to do something, can you then will to do it and get it done? Yes.

The tempted one needs to understand the true force of the will. This is the governing power in the nature of man– the power of decision, of choice. Everything depends on the right action of the will. Desires for goodness and purity are right, as far as they go; but if we stop here, they avail nothing. Many will go down to ruin while hoping and desiring to overcome their evil propensities. They do not yield the will to God. They do not choose to serve Him.–MH 176 (1905). {2MCP 685.2}

What’s the problem? It is the aggressive part of man; the will of man is aggressive. When we look at the cross of Calvary and God starts working in us to will and obey, do you know what will actually happen? Its not by might nor by power but understand this.

The Spirit of God does not propose to do our part, either in the willing or the doing. This is the work of the human agent in cooperating with the divine agencies. As soon as we incline our will to harmonize with God’s will, the grace of Christ stands to cooperate with the human agent; but it will not be the substitute to do our work independent of our resolving and decidedly acting. Therefore it is not the abundance of light, and evidence piled upon evidence, that will convert the soul it is only the human agent accepting the light, arousing the energies of the will, realizing and acknowledging that which he knows is righteousness and truth, and thus cooperating with the heavenly ministrations appointed to God in the saving of the soul.–Lt 135, 1898. 692 {2MCP 691.3}

In this conflict of righteousness against unrighteousness we can be successful only by divine aid. Our finite will must be brought into submission to the will of the Infinite; the human will must be blended with the divine. This will bring the Holy Spirit to our aid, and every conquest will tend to the recovery of God’s purchased possession, to the restoration of His image in the soul.–RH, Aug 25, 1896. (HC 153.) {2MCP 692.2}

Here are all the blessings. We love the Lord, He has worked in our heart and now we want to obey Him, we want to change our life so it is different. We want to change the way we talk, our deportment, our treatment of others, the way we amuse ourselves, the way we dress or eat and the way we treat our children. When we will resolve to do it the Holy Spirit will come to our aid. So who is really the powerhouse? The Holy Spirit, but He requires your firm decision. A half-hearted decision will not bring the Holy Spirit.

Think about the paralytic lying on his bed unable to walk. Jesus walks up to him and asks him if he wants to be healed. Do you think he wants to? Of course he does. He would love to walk. The Lord says take up your bed and walk. If that man was a professed Protestant of today, he would have sat on his bed and said, “Hallelujah, I’m saved!” He would have sat there the rest of his life.

He did the brain connection, deciding that he was going to get up. Naturally that would avail nothing because he was crippled. As he did it he could not boast of his own works of walking, but as he made the decision and as he made the action of getting up, the Holy Spirit fixed his legs and he could walk. If he did not make that decision with all his will-power he would not have been healed.

This is the core of our problems we lack firmness of decision, stepping into the water and depending on the Lord’s promise as we go forth. As I step forward the Holy Spirit moves on the waters and it separates. I had to get my feet wet, but I had to do something before God would do it because He wants us to make the decision.

This is the principle. God has given us everything and we need to get the will power to act outwardly what God has worked inwardly. This is not righteousness by works it is righteousness by faith. Faith that doesn’t do anything is dead.

 Many who excuse themselves from Christian effort plead their inability for the work. But did God make them so incapable? No, never. This inability has been produced by their own inactivity and perpetuated by their deliberate choice. Already, in their own characters, they are realizing the result of the sentence, “Take the talent from him.” {COL 365.3}

When probation closes and then we decide to take action, it is too late. We will not be able to do it for we were too slow to respond to God’s call.

Our entire life is God’s and must be used to His glory. His grace will consecrate and improve every faculty. Let no one say, I cannot remedy my defects of character;… {2MCP 686.3}

There is some truth in this in that when we are not in Christ it is impossible but this mentality continues into a genuine connection with the Lord. Outside of the Lord we can’t do anything, but this does not continue once we have a genuine connection with the Lord. There is the problem.

…for if you come to this decision, you will certainly fail to obtain everlasting life. The impossibility lies in your own will. {2MCP 686.3}

It’s not God’s fault that things don’t get done. God has already given us all things for it to be done. The only thing that is stopping it is you and I.

 If you will not, then you can not overcome. The real difficulty arises from the corruption of unsanctified hearts, and an unwillingness to submit to the control of God.–YI, Jan 28, 1897. {2MCP 686.3}

Brothers and sisters, God is calling us to make a firm decision. We need to make a public declaration, we need to confess God before men, that we will make a decision, a firm resolve to implement what God reveals, by His grace, with a will-power that is aroused by the atonement of Jesus Christ, to be like Him.

Praise the Lord that we are making this decision together. This decision has perhaps already been made in the past, but it is to be ratified and remade again now. Are we not living in the last days? Remember Lot’s wife. Did they serve God at all? Yes, and they were Sabbath-keepers. They lacked the decision. I don’t want any of us to be like that.

Let us consecrate ourselves to the Lord in this decision we have made. He will keep the flame going and we can assist one another in keeping the flame going.

Amen.
