We see Abraham taken into God’s confidence concerning His plans for Sodom and Gomorrah and consider the reasons God gives for this. Next we look at Abraham’s amazing intercession for Sodom and realize that Lot was probably the main subject of the prayer. God graciously receives Abraham in his intercession.
We compare our day and age to the time of Lot in Sodom and see many similarities that cause us to believe we are ripe for God’s judgment as a nation.
We are encouraged by this episode to see the glory of God in His justice and yet His mercy. Above everything else, we see in this event a picture of Christ praying for His people who are in the world, that they may not be caught up in the judgment that is certainly coming.
