“The Hinge of Rescue”

Pastor Dave Novak——————————————————————-6/4/2023

2 Peter 2:6-9 (NLT) God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them
into heaps of ashes. He made them an example of what will happen to ungodly people.
But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of
the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him. Yes, Lot was a righteous man
who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day. So you
see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials
